I really enjoyed this ‘homework’ brief. It was set by Jo Byatt, a member of our local illustration group – we set ourselves small illustration briefs each month, the members take turns to set them. As Jo indicated when she set the brief, anything can be a ‘pet’. Hence the plants.
I found this to be such fertile ground for my imagination – I haven’t even begun to explore many other ideas… bugs in matchboxes, strange bogy-formations perhaps, or ridiculous pets like a rhinoceros or a crocodile.
You could say, this brief has legs.
