A range of more serious stories on the front page of this week’s Westmorland Gazette, but tucked away just inside was a gem to bring delight to the heart of any cartoonist. The World of Beatrix Potter visitor attraction, at The Old Laundry in Bowness-on-Windermere, has decided to develop their own kitchen garden, called - naturally enough - The Peter Rabbit Garden. Produce will appear in their café and they hope it will stimulate children’s interest in eating well. However, they have decided to put up a fence to ensure that pesky wabbit doesn’t get in.
These were my first four rough sketches. You can see the cartoon chosen either in the newspaper or on my site.
