Armadillo

Armadillo
  • "I loved working on the illustrations for 'The Game Cook' drawing feathers and fur was a change from my normal scales and fins! I am still drawn to scales and the Armadillo seemed a perfect combination of fur and scales. Many of my ideas stem from childhood memories and the Armadillo is no exception. My mother had a china jelly mould in the shape of an Armadillo, which had an extraordinary amount of detail and it now strikes me as an very odd animal to portray in jelly! This little fellow was drawn from a specimen at the Natural History Museum in London. I managed to find somewhere quiet to work and was sitting alone drawing the Armadillo when a chap walked in glanced with suprise at the Armadillo and muttered as he left 'you never know what you are going to find in this place, someone in the Mollusc Library drawing an Armadillo!'"
