Introducing Mr. Skirrel

Introducing Mr. Skirrel!

I’ve been wanting to draw a little tribute to our native red squirrels that thrive on the Isle of Wight. They are a constant source of amusement in my family since a rather unfortunate incident that I had with one of the critters when i was 2. The squirrel in question, leapt into my arms and ¬†stole my ‘biddit’ (the Mcvities variety), to my distress. I would imagine that to anyone reading this, it is probably one of those, ‘you had to be there’ kind of stories but nevertheless these opportunists are constantly referred to and anything squirrel related is collected to make us smile. So here he is, my addition to the collection.
