sad old wonkey
This weeks / fornights / months (I'm not sure which) twisted creature for m'colleagues Phil & Kev is the humble donkey...and it doesn't get more humble than mine. I was initially going to do a "wonkey" and make a play on the legs on one side of the body being too short (is that an old kids joke I've blocked out from my childhood I wonder...?) but as I progressed my donkey just got sadder and more world weary and I realised that's pretty much the essence of donkeys for me. As Phil rightly points out A.A. Milne defined donkeys for all the generations to come with old Eeyore. I added a harness because we always seem to be making them haul something from one spot to another.
