Creature

This week's Illustration Friday's theme of 'creature' first made me think of creatures of habit, and then creature comforts - 'things that make life more pleasant, such as good food and a comfortable place to live.' I was tempted to draw animals sleeping in bed but resisted going down that same old familiar route, so plonked them in front of the telly instead.

When I was looking up the definition of creature comforts I re-disovered a series of 90's British 'Heat Electric' ads I used to love, starring a group of animals being interviewed about their household heating and electric appliances. It was my first introduction to Aardman Animations, long before they became famous for Wallace and Gromit. Have a watch - they're still pretty lovable (my favourite was the tortoise).
