Take the Cow by the HornsTake the Cow by the Horns © First Night Design

As soon as I saw this cow among the archives at The Library of Congress, I was smitten.  Wouldn’t you be?  Look at her eyes.  There’s an animal you wouldn’t dream of messing with but the expression is so direct that she holds you in her gaze without allowing you to look away.  I may have called the piece Take the Cow by the Horns but I would not recommend it!

Cow

I created the setting by adding a background from Asunder Ephemera and used Photoshop to adjust the colours and tones until I felt I had done her justice.

The cow has an interesting provenance, coming as she does from a scrapbook of illustrations that were collated by Hans Christian Andersen and A L Drewsen…

What a surprise! I created this design for the last World Cup and a lady has just bought the T-shirt. British football aficionados will recognise the quote — “They think it’s all over…it is now…” — as from the closing seconds  of Kenneth Wolstenholme‘s famous commentary given for the 1966 FIFA World Cup Final between England and Germany.  Yes, England won 4–2 after extra time  and there are still some people who haven’t stopped going on about it, which is rather sad.

Anderson added his own rhymes to many of the pictures.

In the meantime…

Take care and keep laughing!
