Inktober- Day 6 – Rat

Inktober 2020 prompt for day 6 is ‘RAT.’

I hate rats.

How now, a rat? Dead for a ducat, dead!

Shakespeare put those words into Hamlets mouth in Act 3, Scene 4 of, you guessed it, Hamlet. This, just before he stabbed Polonius. In Hamlet’s case then a metaphorical rat. I’d have been quite happy had it been a real rat.

We have been fighting a mini infestation of the little blighters in our garden for some months now. So, this little sketch is not going to be rat friendly. Those who fit in to any of the following categories may wish to turn away now.

  1. Vegetarians
  2. Vegans
  3. Animal rights activists
  4. Cartoon animal rights activists
  5. Rat lovers
  6. Rats

Why did I decide to draw a rat in the sights of a submarine? Dunno. Funnier than just a rat in a gun sight perhaps. Who knows? Who cares as long as the rat gets it? Did I mention that animal rights activists might like to look away?)

The detritus of the long haul Inktober participant

Apparently taking part in Inktober will help me improve my drawing and my creativity. I think it will also cost me money. I’ve decided that I need some shiny new ink pens. I’m off to do some online art supplies shopping. Back tomorrow…

      1. You need one in Scotland, if you are just irritating them your aim must require some work, perhaps you could draw some targets with rats on and pin them to a board for practice, hours of fun to be had.
