The challenge with this one was drawing the sheep in a laid-back sitting position against the tree. I drew the legs the same way as with the shearer episodes, but I'm still not really happy with that. Anyhow. As far as the joke goes, it was a bit of a quickie, a little bit of a callback to one of the very earliest cartoons, where Maureen was standing (obviously) behind the tree, in a "if I can't see you, you can't see me" kind of way.
I'm not sure about the introduction of the confectionary, a lot of the early ones were based on a grass fixation.
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.
Two sheep hear noises behind a tree, and see the outline of a ewe who is obviously sitting the other side of it.
Kath: How did you find me in my secret place...?
