Crooked Man by scratchproductions Crooked Man by scratchproductions
Black and white pen and ink illustration based on the old nursery rhyme 'There was a Crooked Man'. 

'There was a crooked man, and he walked a crooked mile.
He found a crooked sixpence upon a crooked stile.
He bought a crooked cat, which caught a crooked mouse,
And they all lived together in a little crooked house.'

I've drawn a crooked cat somewhere. I tried to draw a crooked mouse, but it really didn't look right.
