This one-foot high tanuki from the edge of the garden stares at Our Man everyday as he works. So today, Our Man spent lunch staring back. And sketching. Our Woman reckons he looks like a sphinx, but Our Man thinks it’s just how he drew him. Tried drawing a Japanese maple next to the little chap, but it came out a mess. So, added to the must-improve folder (currently containing hands, faces and proportions) are maple trees.
And yes, the tanuki in the garden is a little creepy, but probably better than the elephant in the room.
