Aesop's Fables

The Hunter & the Woodsman

A Hunter was searching in the forest for the tracks of a lion, and, catching sight presently of a Woodsman engaged in felling a tree, he went up to him and asked him if he had noticed a lion's footprints anywhere about, or if he knew where his den was. The Woodsman answered, "If you will come with me, I will show you the lion himself." The Hunter turned pale with fear, and his teeth chattered as he replied, "Oh, I'm not looking for the lion, thanks, but only for his tracks."

The Stag & the Lion
A Stag was chased by the hounds, and took refuge in a cave, where he hoped to be safe from his pursuers. Unfortunately the cave contained a Lion, to whom he fell an easy prey. "Unhappy that I am," he cried, "I am saved from the power of the dogs only to fall into the clutches of a Lion."
— Out of the frying-pan into the fire.

A 5 colour screen-print done using my homemade screen-printing workshop (spare room). Based on the myth of Prometheus who stole fire from the gods and delivered it to Humans, upon being caught he was cursed to spend eternity shackled to a mountain side whilst having his liver pecked out by an eagle, during the day, only for it to grow back over night. The next morning the eagle would return and begin eating the revitalised liver.....Ouchy!

I was kindly asked to illustrate a written piece about the pioneering Manchester born swimmer Sunny Lowry for the Manchester fanzine The Shrieking Violet. Big thanks go to Jacky for her wonderful words and for allowing me to do whatever I wanted when it came to the page layout and images.
