Inktober #2 Picnic

Xavier and Flo and I had a picnic lunch on the grass at the Classic Car Boot Sale near Kings Cross. I loved this girl's pink outfit.

InkTober – the Professor

In an attempt to kick start my joy in drawing I'm going to try and participate in "InkTober" this year. For those of you who don't know what it is, it's a month-long challenge for artists to draw once a day for the month using ink. A rather stressful day today meant that I didn't think about this until I attended a lecture this evening with the very interesting Professor Shirley Reynolds. All I had to hand was a biro and a lined pad, but I think biros would count as ink so I'm going to allow myself this one.

Flowers in my kitchen

Buying flowers

Many years ago I bought flowers for the funeral of a dear friend who I had shared a flat with for a couple of years. As an impoverished student, flowers seemed to be a wild extravagance so I'd never bought them when we were living together. It seemed so sad that he'd never enjoyed our flat looking more cheerful with flowers while he was alive, so in memory of Roger I regularly buy flowers so that the living can enjoy them. I'm sure Roger would approve.

The comfort of crap TV

I'm up to series 4 of House MD. I'm finding formulaic television is a great anaesthetic. I'm hoping that 2015 will mean that I'll move onto sketching. 

The view from my bed

Been wanting a dressing table for the past 15 years. Great to at last be able to apply the slap without having to perch on the edge of the bed.
