Michelle Cox says about this drawing: I follow Edgar’s Mission and by doing this I have learnt more about battery hens. I thought the red pen could convey the sadness and death involved in these industry practices.

Marylou says: “I have drawn something that I’ve been a bit obsessed with for several months, since we have a new deck on the back of our house. All these amazingly coloured leaves keep falling… and I have been peering at the delightful details of them. A ‘red’ one I picked up a while back was the inspiration to apply for the red pen.

I guess for me the leaf that falls from the tree and shrivels up is symbolic, it is a little death, they cause me to think of the life cycle of nature. The colour red I would associate with the life cycle too, present in birth and death, and I suppose in evidence in living too – blood doesn’t necessarily denote wounding but life.”
