Brian the Boa 1985 (pencil)
Brian was my pet Boa Constrictor who shared a room with me in the nurses home in England back in the days when I was a nurse. On a wet Sunday afternoon with little else to do I decided to draw him whilst he was settled on his favourite branch......he was just a baby then about 2 foot long. Unfortunately by the time he had grown to about 6 foot, a rumour had spread throughout the nurses' home that someone had a snake in their room & a few of the Thai nurses were becoming a little paranoid about encountering a snake on the loose, so Brian had to be found a new home much to my dismay :(
This has always been one of my favourite drawings apart from the log he was resting on....that was pretty naff, wish I had drawn that better at the time!
