Fox & Toad

Vegetarian Fox meets Toad.

These are just some prints and cards I did with one of my favourite muses: foxes! Ever since I came to London I’ve been fascinated by them. They’re so red and pointy!



It’s kind of fun to imagine what sort of life they have while not being observed by people. I’m pretty sure they make friends with toads, read good books and fly kites.  These are actually sketches that I make like a collage. I do the main figures first, and then start drawing different props and backgrounds in different spreads of paper. For some reason, it’s way easier for me this way – I guess I’m totally relaxed because I don’t have to think of the layout altogether, so everything flows better. Then, once scanned, I try different layouts. It gives me that flexibility.
