True story

In my previous post I blamed a beautiful day in the woods for a lack of drawings to show. Well, here is a visual representation of said day.

Comic about a boy helping a girl

And then they had tea and cake after the boy dried his muddy feet on the girls jacket. They lived happily ever after and sure hoped to live near those woods one day. True story…

“Haha, thrush”

Comic about birds

On my way to work, I often come across this little bird couple pottering around a disused field. They are quite an uncommon sight in the city centre. Beige with brown spots and a particular round belly, the Song Thrush is a rather pretty bird compared to your typical Leeds pigeon.

The most beautiful thing about these birds is that they’re always together and seemingly look after each other. Not long ago I noticed they had constructed a nest… on top of a traffic light! Their investment was doomed to fail as real estate is of course all about location, location, location. And that staggered Pelican crossing was just way too crowded.

Now all that remains are a few twigs held together by down feathers and dog hair. And the birds? They’re back in the field. Childless.
