Martens Ate My Car

This drawing depicts a family of beech martens, Martes foina, eating our car, a Skoda Felicia. Few people back home in Scotland believe me, but this is a genuine and frequently ocurring hazard encountered here in Vienna, and apparently in much of Europe – see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beech_Marten Beech martens are actually only the size of large cats, and normally chew brake cables or spark plugs rather than dismantling the entire thing. Our car, named Crapbag, fell prey after only three weeks of living here, and unfortunately my third party insurance did not cover the car for being eaten.
I drew the sketch in pencil and added the colour in Photoshop.
