Ladies of the Moor....

There is no intention of inferring any similarity between two of these images.
All I'm saying is - you've got to be careful who you talk to when out on the wind blasted heath.
I was lucky.
I bumped into two blondes (...it's okay the missus understands!)
My encounter ended up with me being 'cursed' with the not-unpleasant task of illustrating a new kid's book, a rather jolly tale about exploration and discovery called "The Non-Story of Ignatius Bowerman".
The other fellow pictured above is the eponymous hero of that tale (not a story - you have to read the book to understand...).
He didn't fare quite as well.
He bumped into a witch or three, and tried to evict them.
He got turned into stone, along with his trusty hounds - which seems a little harsh (on the hounds that is - they were only following orders...)
Actually I've done some research and we always assume that witches come in threes and have pointy hats and cauldrons....
perhaps it was just as well that I agreed to do the job....!!!
