Doctor Bill Bill Platypus

It's been a while since I drew anything cute, and I think my friends are probably feeling oversaturated because of all the naughty sketches from the last little while.

The platypus has always had a special significance for me, because when I was small, my babysitter and I would watch Mister Rogers together, and when the Trolley took us to the land of Make Believe and we saw Doctor Duckbill Platypus, my babysitter would call me "Doctor Billbill Platypus." That may have been the earliest time I imagined having 'Doctor' for my title, but it stayed with me through my life, and when I finished my PhD and actually had that title, it was my big platypus moment.

Anyway, now my friends send me photos of cute platypi, and today I drew one:
