Who was it that taught you how to love? If you look through all the Quinn the Fox illustrations I've done, you’ll see that apart from foxes, the second most reoccurring motif is the heart. I think it’s probably because they are so many idioms and phrases related to it, from expressing crushing devastation to cloud-bursting joy. I’ve always maintained that the world is absurd and Quinn was my way of processing feelings that I couldn’t express fully with words. Through drawing Quinn, my hope was that he (and hopefully I) would ultimately learn what it means to be human. So on this Valentine’s Day, here is a guide on how to rebuild a heart. I drew it in the position of Quinn, an observer who has no medical or scientific knowledge but has only learnt what he knows about the heart through sayings and colloquialisms. See how many idioms you can spot!
