Illustration Friday – Undone

A quick drawing for Illustration Friday with the theme of ‘Undone’ – not sure if I was thinking ‘Undone’, as in the crab’s situation, the pot lid or not cooked; probably covers all three. As a child we used to go to a village called Beer in Devon, where crabs were regularly caught in pots and brought back to be cooked by the fishermen’s wives; with many tales of them escaping from the pan. How many of the tales were true and how many to alarm small children I don’t know.

The Spotify playlist is one I created earlier in the year when we had been crabbing at Walberswick.
