Worn                         Shorn

This before and after image was formed early in my mind for the Illustration Friday topic, "Worn."  In looking for sheep models to draw, I came across this great story about Shrek the merino sheep who went AWOL from the herd for six years.  To see what he looked like when he was found, watch this feature on Shrek.  60 lbs was a lot of wool to wear, and would also be a little worn by the time the shears were involved.
