Art Expectations Day 91

Jail Bird

It’s a very dark, wet, misty and muddy night as Mr Wopsle and Pip make their way home from having tea in town. They run into Orlick who has also spent his half-holiday in town and is looking for company on his way home, so he says. He sings loudly and Pip thinks he is drunk, but he isn’t.

As the three walk on together they hear guns going off down in the marshes by the river. More escaped convicts. Orlick says, “There’s some of the birds flown from the cages … We’d be puzzled how to bring down a jail-bird on the wing, tonight.” Meaning, I think, that it’s a miserable, difficult night to try to hunt down escapees.

I created this cute jail-bird in Illustrator. I think he has escaped!
