A drawspace for the child-like imagination.
Looks great! Stylized but still has depth with the "bull rushes" in the back. I don't know if this would match your style or not, but I watched a guy painting in photoshop and for a wood handle he just grabbed a texture from cgtextures.com and slapped it on with a mask. So simple but I had never thought about it. If that doesn't work I think it might just need a knot or two and squiggly lines :)
