Secret 7" 2014 submission 1: Elbow 'Grounds for Divorce'

This year I entered two 7" single covers for Secret 7" 2014. As ever, there were 7 singles/musicians to choose from. This time the charity being supported was Warchild.

My first choice was Elbow's 'Grounds for Divorce'. The lyrics to me suggested disapproval and being ostracised, being in the doghouse. So I did some doggy sketches, mainly lurchers and greyhopunds:

I also made use of this sketch I had done a couple of months earlier - although not suggesting disapproval originally, it seemed to convey that if it was presented like an ancestral portrait on the wall:

This is the Elbow final piece that I submitted:
