The topic for Illustration Friday this week is ‘savour’. As many regular readers of this blog will know I have a penchant for a certain savoury spread called Marmite. I was sure that there was too much savouring of the spread going on when I learned this week of the theft from a warehouse of £60,000 of Marmite and Marmite Christmas products including their Peculiar Milk Chocolate. I haven’t time to turn this into a proper picture, so just my rough sketch for now of someone sneaking a jar of Marmite out from a hole in the fence.
I know that a lot of people come to these pages via Illustration Friday from all over the world where Marmite is not found. It is difficult stuff to explain; a brown yeast extract goo. Notoriously people either love it or hate it.
