Illustration Friday: Germ

This is genuinely to do with the topic – influencing factors include Auden’s poem “As I walked out one evening”, Hugh Lunn’s description in Over the Top with Jim of his father always breaking chipped teacups (because of the germs – see!), one of my tea sets (hand painted in lilac and gold, but without rhinoceri), and a rhinoceros (for which I have my reasons).

Also: I have finished (and finished uploading) the latest sketchbook, now showing on Flickr, and have just finished a book plate design for Gillian Polack.
