Detail: Healthy Healthy Hippos

This starts with a travel version of Hungry Hungry Hippos. But these hippos care about their well being, so they watch what they eat. This Weight Watchers Cookbook is from the late 1960s.

The question that slowed this particular piece down was how many of the round balls to use. In my mind, each one is a Weight Watcher point. This yellow one was the special one. But it looked busy. I spent some time researching patterns and thinking about constellations and math. And maybe someday I will go down that path. But I want it to be meaningful, so for the moment it is these two hippos going for the last calorie point on the board.
