Veni vidi vici (crest II sketch)

crest_squirrel

Schematic/crest of 3 shields of the Grey Squirrel (Sciurus vulgaris).
Originally imported from America to Great Britain ca. 1840 as a living lawn ornament. On left, the nationalist¬† imperative that the Greys should now be exterminated; on right; deforestation in part to supply the Briitsh Royal Navy with timber historically contributed to the near-vanquished Red Squirrel’s loss of habitat, helping to pave the way for the victorious Greys.

The gruff singer claimed he would “happily set about an endangered red squirrel with a set of professional hedge-clippers”.

Drawing V (study for a taxidermy arrangement)

Red vs. Greys
Red vs. Greys

Working on a plan to make a taxidermy sculpture, if I can get Paul Parker to give me all his bullet-ridden Grey culls. They’ll be put to good use, employ one of my favorite taxidermists, and look something like zombies from Shaun of the Dead. (The Red will be old fare, nothing newly killed unless I can get a pox victim stuffed).
