Illustration Friday: Stripes

There was a young lady of Niger
Who smiled as she rode on a tiger.
They returned from the ride
With the lady inside,
And the smile on the face of the tiger.

Illustration Friday: Stripes

This was drawn in pen and ink with digital colour for Illustration Friday, and is part of an idea I was toying with for a steampunk/clockpunk circus. But here I discovered a flaw – for who would wind up the tiger?

The limerick is by William Cosmo Monkhouse.

  1. Inspiring! I wrote a limerick even:

    There once was a woman so clever
    A tiger she built with a lever
    But! To pump up the beast,
    Might result in a Feast!
    And no one would wind it, Not Ever.
