There Was An Old Lady Who Lived In A Shoe


here's what i'm doing at the moment... it's for a charity auction the Clutter gang are arranging where each artist involved has to pick a nursery rhyme or fairy tale to recreate in their own way, and i picked There Was An Old Lady Who Lived In A Shoe. i thought it'd be an interesting one to draw, the image is one we all know and love.... little did i know it happens to be the shittest nursery rhyme ever.......

There was an old woman who lived in a shoe.
She had so many children, she didn't know what to do;
She gave them some broth without any bread;
Then whipped them all soundly and put them to bed.

it doesn't make sense and there is no point to it, although i did have the image of a Jeremy Kyle take on the poem; a young chav beating her 20 kids, living in a giant Reebok Classic (and that's the road i would have gone down had i not already started with the pictures above). as always, i'll keep you posted with the progress. xo
