Have started working on a new image based on the Brother’s Grimm story, ‘the Tom-tit and the Bear’… hoping to start working on the plate next week!

    The story is about a bear who offends a tom-tit resulting in a war between all flying things and all beasts. The fox in the story is the leader of the fight and makes a plan to use it’s tail to signal the end of the fight. He’ll point it upwards if they are winning and point it down to announce defeat. However, the fox’s plan is overheard by a knat who is sitting on a leaf and the knat informs the tom-tit. As a result the hornets are enlisted to sting the fox’s bum, forcing him to put his tail down and cause the beasts to retreat… It’s an odd little story that made me laugh so thought i’d illustrate it!
