Here's a toothy drawing from a novel - one of the climatic text illustrations from Volume 1 of Robin Jarvis's The Deptford Mice series, the Japanese edition of which I illustrated some years ago. The publishers felt the original author-created drawings were unsuitably 'in the face' for Japanese tastes, so I re-illustrated the whole series. It's about plucky mice surviving in a dark and magical world of South London, terrorised by rats and a demonic cat - the owner of these fangs.
