About 'An Interlude With a Fox' by Nikki McIvor
I have always had a soft spot for foxes. Roald Dahl's” Fantastic Mr. Fox” was one of my favourite children's books.
As much as I would love to see foxes roaming the countryside, I am also very happy they were never introduced to New Zealand. I shudder to think the damage they would have done to our native bird population.
The inspiration for this pen & pencil drawing came from a YouTube video called Geoff & Dawn which chronicles the close friendship between Dawn, a wild fox, and Geoff who is an animal rescuer working in a sanctuary in England. The fox’s expression is wary, but if you look closely at the fox’s eye, you can see the outline of a person reflected with his arms spread wide in welcome.
The title of this drawing was also inspired a song entitled 'Interlude' by British band London Grammar. Both song and video compliment each other in showing how love can break through barriers that are traditionally populated with mistrust.
