Mostly I do like to do happy and quirky images, especially celebrating our animal world, but sometimes we are inspired by other thoughts and emotions. These days this image is probably an obsolete one and is more likely to be replaced with a text on an iphone, but the sentiments are still the same, and all too sad for the one on the receiving end. Hopefully what is conveyed in this image, that as harsh as it might seem, the writer is really struggling with her job at hand. My melancholy in drawing this image has been fuelled by the 24 hour coverage of yesterday's earthquake in Christchurch NZ, and our thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected by this devastating event!!!
