3 Squid and a Mouse, sketches by Amy Crook

I was considering squid for a painting I eventually left abstract, but these guys got doodled up while I was contemplating how to add the squid in without disrupting the flow of the piece. It’s also part of my tiny emerging practice of doing some sketching in pen, without the crutch of my eraser

    I love your mouse, it reminds me of Picasso’s dove.

    Aww, thank you! I drew him because the squid’s back-and-front fins reminded me a bit of mouse ears.

    Now that you mention it, I can see the resemblance. The squid on the right looks a bit like a mouse running out of a pile of leaves. The squid on the left looks like a rocket-propelled penis 🙂

    Well, you know, they’re squid — the phallic resemblance is inevitable. 😉
