I was inspired by the return of Spring, parks and my experience from walking my own dogs (and Casper) for this illustration. I’ve never walked this many at one time though! I wanted to experiment with various expressions, characters and a larger setting for the dogs. I liked the idea that London is being over-run by wild Westies, although the dog walker still manages some level of control! However, Billy has managed to escape and Basil is an entangled mess. As always, the ever-changing, unpredictable English weather still plagues someone. This time it’s the mice while they’re trying to do their daily shopping run.
