Opera Gerbil

As an illustrator, sometimes I get images stuck in my head until I put them on paper. My church choir director is an opera singer and she can sing with the force of angels. In an attempt to teach the soprano's how to hit their high notes, she has been convincing us that we have to use the muscles of our face to make our voices cooperate. Thus, we do gerbil faces. We pull up our lips, hit our high notes and sing our little hearts out like opera gerbils (we do not go so far as to wear the viking helmets).
