The first idea for a while that's really made me chuckle.
Update - 15 Jan - I've re-drawn this one using the new style, because it was the last one I did with the old look, and I really like the joke. I simply replaced the image on this page.
There are also sad overtones; of course different species have different lifespans and life must look very different if you have a much shorter or much longer life than ours. But it's not a happy thought that we've bred sheep to be mature within their first year. I did enjoy drawing Crow attempting to hang off the young and bendy branch.
Jigsaw - online
What's more fun than a cuddle with a woolly critter?
Try completing a puzzle online - they have just the right number of pieces for a coffee-break challenge and you gradually reveal the cartoon.
If you like Yvonne then the good news is that you can support the author, buy the image to keep and avail yourself of some really useful kit, such as mugs, bags, coasters, mouse mats, postcards, greetings cards, even posters and prints.
Don't see the item you'd like with the cartoon you'd like? Just email me, I'll be happy to arrange it for you.
You're welcome to share any Yvonne image on the web and social media, exactly as it appears (ie without editing the image at all). It must keep the copyright notice below the box (which is part of the image, so it will remain as long as you don't crop it off).
