I started drawing this as my contribution to the pOstage/’draw-in’ that was eamiled from Belfast via DRAWING-RESEARCH@JISCMAIL.AC.UK. I was partnered with David Berube . I received a card from him with a lino cut portrait with a gold toothed orange monster. I could think of nothing else so started a drawing of the dog. Suddenly she went rigid and wide eyed. One of the builders had mentioned seeing a mouse earlier that day and there it was hopping very casually around the floor. This drawing is the result. Then I caught the mouse while the dog watched. Here it is- I trapped it inside an old half pint milk bottle and emptied it into the garden.
