This is my contribution to the Lolcal News exhibition in Norwich, Norfolk, UK. The exhibition featured funny headlines from local Norfolk newspapers, illustrated by local creatives.
I illustrated the headline "Norfolk Mum’s slow cooker fry-up gets ‘overwhelming’ reaction".
While thinking how best to illustrate this as simply as possible, I thought the key was to communicate waiting (the slow cooker took 9 hours to make the breakfast).
I considered an hour glass, but rejected as it only measured an hour, plus it seemed to me to be an old fashioned object. To reflect the modern, convenient method chosen by this Norfolk Mum to prepare her family's hot breakfast, I made a buffering symbol from slow cooking sausages.
