" I was put on hold
And never released"
I really went out of the box for this illustration, so I thought I should explain.. :)
When I first read Matt's tiny story I thought about the obvious things like telephones, being held captive etc. But then I went a little deeper and thought of the fish who keep their babies in their mouths for safety when there is a predator around. So I ran with that and substituted a whale for the fish.
The whale has released all the other fish except for one, maybe he's in love with this fish?
If it doesn't work for this tiny story, hopefully it'll inspire some new ones!
