Axel Scheffler’s Pebble Art

Axel Scheffler and his family spent the weekend with Kate and Adrian and their family on the border of England and Wales.

They ate cake and chatted and walked in the Brecon Beacons National Park and jumped into the Wye from a seven-metre cliff (well, some of them did).

But what this image shows is that you can’t keep a good illustrator down. Without his normal artistic accoutrements, and armed only with a few pebbles and twigs, Axel made this picture of a pirate and his dog, which made us smile and which we share with you.
