Clockwork mouse

Clockwork mouse

This illustration is inspired by Enid Blyton's The Magic Faraway Tree my favourite book as a child. One of the magical lands the children visit in the story is Toy Land where they meet many toys including a clockwork mouse. The clockwork mouse I have created longs to be a real mouse.
