animals

my kids

tell me that I’m better at animals than people. These are mostly done in response to odd requests or challenges.

three toed

sloth, waiter, roller skates.

His name is Willow.

an elegant

I can’t remember whether the pun was deliberate or an effect of the spellchecker on whats-app.  

Anyway, one thing led to another as it so often does.

bunny

on a throne reading a book (obviously)

horse on a bike

again a challenge but this time from someone on instagram I hadn’t previously heard of – Marta Altes

She was good enough to “like” it and comment on it which I thought was kind of her.

giant anteater

unusually without any further brief . . .

this camel

was done for one of Ania’s blog posts entitled Camel Beauty 

"these existential conflicts

invariably ended with the aliens vanquishing the poor humans. The latter rendered helpless by giggles and slimy ears.”

a wino-sceros

 

for my dear chum Jim Lewis

this was

a daughter challenge. He’s called Prof. Squeakistein apparently.

And he’s inventing a humantrap.

dinos

always seem to get a “cool” tag in everyone’s mind.

crocs

fall in love too, you know.

. . . my
missus


on a morning run.

The lizard wasn’t invited on the run – in fact he was trying to leave the party. 

dancing

in the rain

or

bungee-jumping!

I can't remember

who asked me to draw a horse in a hammock.
Does it matter?

flies dancing

to the sound of a trumpeting elephant.

 

Apparently the word “trumpeting” is ambiguous when applied to elephants.
