Of Magickle Sheep

January 16, 2013

Some time ago, I did this drawing, as a silly joke aimed at photography’s Guy Collier.

In the course of Nick (@aslongasicycle, Vulpine supremo) thanking me for his Ug Cyclist drawing Guy mentioned the Magickle Merino sheep again.

I went back to my old sketchbooks, and found the sheep, somewhat smudged, but otherwise in good fettle.
