Mice in nice dresses

I've been drawing mice again.  This picture makes me think of Asop's The Country Mouse and the City Mouse, though the fable has nothing to do with the characters I drew. 

It's amazing how much one can tell about a character by their clothes.  You probably know a lot about my mice already just from how they're dressed.  The story of Cinderella hinges on clothes -shoes in particular.  Puss in Boots is all about getting ahead by dressing right.  I don't know if clothes make the mouse, but the outfits sure can be fun to come up with.
