You may remember that I went to Shoreditch to draw snakes a couple of months ago?? I had so much fun I went again, this time to a room above a pub not that far from the home of Arsenal football team, to draw a baby micropig called Lulu. Here she is:
She is much harder to draw than the snakes, because she never stops moving, hence the blurry photos:
She was very curious, and pretty calm once she got used to being at the centre of a circle of besotted would-be artists.
She was about 8 weeks old, and weighed about 3Kg. She may grow up to be as big as 50lbs, or 23 Kg, so although I rather covet her as my emotional support animal, she will be a little large for those long-distance flights. And think carefully before considering one as a pet…
This was my best attempt:
I will let her say goodbye in person (and notice that like wild pigs her tail is straight rather than curly):
Piglet: “How do you spell ‘love’?”
Pooh: “You don’t spell it…you feel it.”

THis is very sweet, and I like your drawing, I’d love to have a pig, a micropig, grunting and rooting around the backyard… >
…so small that he slips into a pocket, where it is very comfortable to feel him when you are not quite sure whether twice seven is twelve or twenty-two.
What is there to say except….oooooowwwwww! Too cute!
