This tiny guy crossed the walking path on my evening walk.
At least I think it was a mole. It might have been a mouse. The lil guy looked confused about where it was going. It managed to cross the path (grassy fields on both sides) in kind of a zigzag and stop when hitting the grass.
I walked by carefully trying not to disturb and took this photo:
I made the drawing several days later trying to remember what the creature looked like.
I ended up googling some images of the front end of a mole and changing the placement of its paws a bit 😆
What do you think, was it a mouse or a mole? Does my drawing look like either, or both?
Some stuff involving food and animals happened in the house this week…
Neighbour Cat knows she doesn’t live in our house (I think). So she walked out the door willingly with a look that said “Oh hello Neighbour Humans, I was just stopping by. See you!”.
The frog, however, took a while to get to leave the basement. It escaped from my hands the first time I grabbed it, jumped onto the table and then hid under a closet. But in the end, I managed to get him into a bucket and ran out into the garden before he did another wild jump for freedom.
He didn’t seem to believe one bit that I was trying to help, that I would do my best not to squish him, and that living outside is much better for a frog.
I like crows a lot, but I don’t think I’ve drawn one before. I like the result of the drawing, though – I think he has the suspicious facial expression and piercing eyes of a real crow.
I’m pretty sure my fascination with crows started when I was a kid reading Sven Nordqvists picture books about a cow who likes to do human things and is friends with a crow called Crow (who often tells her off for not acting like a normal cow). The title of series is “Mor Muh” in Danish – literally translated to “Mama Moo”. The Swedish author is most known for his Pettson & Findus books, but the cow books are incredible too – and the drawings are so good.
I also made a 1 minute video of the drawing process, ’cause that’s my jam now! Here it is:
