Party Shoes

I've been reading about Nakimi fountain pens which sound like paradise to draw well as being beautifully made and a work of art in themselves. Unfortunately I will have to wait until I win the lottery before I can nip out and buy one. So, this drawing is with my old fountain pen from the chinese shop down the road. I may use it to draw a weather girl. Have you ever noticed how all the weather girls on the television all share the same pair of shiny, black, rather, oddly-designed high heels?

No global warming in these parts. It's an ice age here. It actually snowed and snowed and snowed.

The trio is up and running again but because it was the first time after the christmas break there was an awful lot of giggling apart from when one of the ladies started singing a mournful flamenco type song then everybody shed a tear or two. I had never heard her sing before. Talk about goosebumps. It's not often I get to hear someone sing sitting right next to me. I wish I could still sing...

Our Maureen

I've added a link on the sidebar to "Our Maureen" which is an old comic strip blog of mine. You have to click to enlarge any of them. If you need a translation for the text talk in DIKU let me know. Or...consult your nieces and nephews. Or look up text talk...

Snow, snow,snow,snow....

If your eyesight is like to enlarge.

This is really scraping the bottom of the barrel because I drew it a few years ago but you've never seen it coloured in. I dug this out after seeing Britain under snow on Sky news. I haven't seen snow like that since I was tiny. I'm still tiny but now I'm getting on a bit and tiny.

Mr Bean Rules!

Mr Bean, President of Spain.

I broke a tooth on a pistachio nut. My favourite ceramic bowl for the garlic broke when hit by the olive oil bottle but the day rapidly improving by the fact that somebody hacked into the Government of Spain website and replaced the smiling Zapatero with smiling Mr. Bean. It's a well known fact that the average Spaniard thinks Mr. Bean is their president. If you don't believe me, google "Zapatero, Mr. Bean."
Or just go here...

The above is me bumbling around in Adobe illustrator 2 and photoshop.
