Squirrels Relief

Squirrels Relief

The brief was to produce a character and put it into a sequence of at least five images. The images were to tell a short narrative. I wanted a character that could really play on the emotions of the audience. Living beside a park, I have seen many a 'dog vs squirrel' chase and I spent some time watching the squirrels sprinting away until they feel safe and then stopping, watching and waiting for the enemy to get distracted before continuing with their daily rituals. It is here where I got my inspiration.

These three panels out of five, form part of a short narrative, titled, 'Squirrels Relief'. I used mainly collage and coloured pencil and enhanced the quality digitally.
