Chicken-headed Man Goes Swimming

Ball Pentel pen and watercolour on paper, A4: This strange persona came from a doodle in my sketchbook which was calling out to be worked up into an illustration. Who knows what it signifies although often when I go swimming with fishes on holiday I'm really a bit "chicken", rarely go out of my depth, and am always looking behind me expecting a Great White or something to be silently stalking me. See what 'Jaws' has done to us? Made us feart to go in the water!

Nice to hear from you Susannah. Thanks for your comments but don't be frightened- the fishes can't bite you - they are only a figment of my imagination!
