In every cartoon commission I do ,somewhere in the picture is a mouse.....Why you may ask...well I am a joinery manufacturer and one of the most bespoke furniture manufacturers in the UK is Robert Thompsons of Kilburn .Each piece they make is hand made in English oak and each craftsman carves his own mouse on the piece he has made. It is not possible for me to do that on all the things I make so I decided that I would have a mouse in each of the cartoons I do. This is just a quick scetch of one ............
