Not to everyone's taste

ONE animal picture spawns another. It often happens that way.

No sooner was Running Dogs off the easel than Hyenas took its place.

In fact, these hyenas don't look much like hyenas, but it's the mood of the image that suggests these laughing, snarling scavengers. Maybe Jackals would have been a better title.

Sometimes it's difficult to say where certain images spring from. They start with a line, a sweep of the marker pen, and just evolve. This one is a case in point. It will not be to everyone's taste, but then even Pablo Picasso produced pictures you wouldn't want hanging on your sitting room wall.
