There was a crooked . . .


I managed a little bit of illustration this weekend, I wanted to work towards Illustration Friday every week, but I have to say that often the inspiration word doesn't work for me. However this week's word is 'crooked' and I immediately thought of the rhyme; 'There was a crooked man and he walked a crooked mile, He found a crooked sixpence upon a crooked stile. He bought a crooked cat, which caught a crooked mouse'.


  1. Love the simplicity of the lines. Beautiful work Hazel.

  2. Such a fun and strange character!

  3. He's wonderful - simple line, but lots of detail when you look closer (blue veined old-man hands!) that give him loads of character! Great illustration :)

  4. I like your work, Hazel, especially the crooked cat.

  5. I love it too. I've been trying to finish one I started about a little girl who runs into a skunk in the forest. You've inspired me to work on it today.

    1. I am very proud to have inspired you. If you have a link please send it to me.
