You're more than welcome, Paschalis. I really admire anyone who can draw like that.

And Gill - you're never too old to play with road kill! But it's best to take the whole skeleton and not just the skull. That way you won't disappoint the next wildlife artist who comes along and finds only a headless corpse. Speaking from experience - you can tell!

Yes, I think picking the whole body up and sticking it in the boot to take home would be better than trying to dismember it in situ.......if only to avoid funny looks from passing motorists and, most likely, having to attempt to explain what I'm doing to any curious police

I like these images, it certainly is a different style.
Are you listening to the voice that talks in your head while you read this?
