When dusting of some original artwork I came across this page, which was done some time ago for a book celebrating Dutch literary works. This was done after the (canonised) oldest lines "Hebban olla vogala nestas" scribbeled in the margins by a monk, probably trying a new pen. It's universal female complaint: all the birds have started building nests, except for you and me. What the hell are we waiting for?

This version was rejected, because with my hydras it moves well into the teritory of parody. Fair enough. Another one got into the book, no problem. Still like this one, though. Touched it up a bit.
