While doing a quick sketch of this mule he was basically a good model, standing stock still. He did keep flipping his tail and shaking his head before I focused on the flies annoying him. He also seemed to be staring past, or even through me. I turned and looked over my shoulder, and there was an old wagon… it was then I heard the words; “I’d rather draw wagons than flies.”
I now shook my head. Was this a Mr. Ed of mules? OR, was it me who’d spoken unknowingly out loud?
I sketched the wagon and then added the quote I’d heard at the bottom. I know flys is spelled flies, but didn’t you know mules don’t spell well?
It was drawn on a plain 5×8″ card and was an experiment in mule whispering. I have also stayed up way past my bedtime to get this card designed appropriately in Photoshop for a RB card layout.
