YOU are eating sausages...

For the 'Scheveningen Violet' prompt for Colour Collective I decided to use the colour as a foil for Myrna's orange food bowl. She's a real drama queen, and if she finds her bowl empty, she will bang it around with a paw, mutter away, whine, try eating the bowl as a pointed hint, and finally collapse dramatically from starvation. 

However, you may notice that this bowl is not empty. That's because if she finds boring biscuits* in there, and we are eating something more interesting she will tip out the biscuits defiantly and stare at us in a vaguely affronted way. She would make an excellent stereotypical teenage human in these moments.

*No, she doesn't just get boring biscuits, she has a varied diet - but her mid-evening post-walk snack is just BB. 

The expression was a hard one to capture, especially when simplified down this much. The tiniest tweak of an eyebrow is enough to make or break it, so it took the most time for this illustration.
