Inktober – Day 24 – DIG

Today’s Inktober 2020 prompt word is DIG. I instantly thought of that subterranian paragon of digging; the animal that is the very definition of the word; the humble and much maligned mole. I’m sure if we had moles in our garden I would be less of a fan, but we don’t, so I think they are cute little critters.

I did however, wonder what they get up to down there. I thought I would portray a mole watching the TV, but how can a mole, with little in the way of eyes, get any enjoyment from watching the TV? So, I checked out the interweb for inspiration and got to wondering how come they always look so clean when they are constantly digging in mud? And that is where I got the idea. So, here at last, is the truth of what it is they do down there and how they always look so darned clean.

The documentary makers rarely show you the truth of what moles get up to underground

Here’s a close up of Mr Mole…

The truth about why moles always look so clean

Tomorrow’s prompt word is BUDDY. See you tomorrow my friend.

Once again, I’ve included a Link to the instagram #Inktober2020dig page with thousands more submissions by people around the world who are also taking part in Inktober. I’m certainly not alone in my choice of subject today.

Also included is a link to my Instagram page where you can see all my submissions so far.
