Rattus Norvegicus

Not only the title of an album by The Stranglers which provided the soundtrack to my misspent late teens, but also the presumed previous owner of a skull I found today while ridding the garden borders of unwanted shrubs. These views are all close to actual size – about 4.5cm in length. I cannot recall ever attempting to draw something quite as teeny as a rat’s cheek teeth.

Couldn’t help thinking of R.E. Wolf as I drew these …

Pen, Inktense & coloured pencil in Japanese-fold Pocket Moleskine.
