Owl and the Pussycat

As part of the development for the murals company, I have been asked to develop some more Nursery Rhymes in the same style as the Hey Diddle Diddle one. So I have begun the process by doing The Owl and the Pussycat. It has been a little challenge as the verses are longer, but here is the first plate. The final one is below, done in Illustrator.

1 creative person, slightly matured
2 tablespoons aptitude
1 piece of aesthetic flavouring
6lbs hard work and sweat
4 ideas more than most
salt of the earth to taste

Take a creative person and stir in some aptitude, thoroughly from the start. In time, mix in the aesthetic flavouring with the most appropriate tool at hand, and then, fold into the mix as much of the hard work and sweat that the mix can take. Sprinkle in the ideas; the more the better. And finally, as all is cooking, a pinch of ‘salt of the earth’ to give it the necessary character. Leave to cook over time and serve when required. Tasty treat in a tasteless world.
