over my shoulder

This is where I've been hiding all week - in this drawing. Do you know what ties all the objects, on the shelves, together? If you want to know, find out HERE.

A while ago I asked you if anyone could guess the song that inspired the drawing you can see HERE. The answer was Johnny Cash's cover of the Nine Inch Nails single 'Hurt'. It's a stunningly gorgeous song, great album and, in my opinion, one of the most beautiful videos ever made. You can see that video HERE.

looking down on everything

I've been kicking about some ideas on the the theme of 'mail', which is how this drawing came about. I don't know how I feel about it. Well, I do, but I won't say! I'm trying desperately hard to be less self critical. I don't think it's very helpful, and sometimes, I think, it sounds like I'm fishing for compliments. Which I'm not. These are just the thoughts that go through my head. The habits of a life time are hard to change.

gypsy dancer

Here is the first entry that I made in my little Japanese Moleskine (well, as much as I could fit on the scanner anyway) for the Moley Exchange project, that you can read about HERE. And, get this; yesterday this little book arrived at France Belleville's place in New Jersey and today Suzanne Buchanan's Moleskine dropped through my letterbox. How fabulous is that?

It's also given me a good excuse to get the camera out, so if you'd like to see this book from every possible angle, then you need to get a life. Only kidding, check out THIS.

(Apologies to Gabi, whose surname I completely and utterly misspelled on the inside cover of my book.)

on the couch

I'm sure that I really shouldn't be sharing these thoughts and abstractions, but I suppose once you've revealed the contents of your underwear drawer then any thing's material.

drawn to all things

I used to be a hoarder. Then some years back I decided to declutter my life. And was quite successful. Then I started drawing. Now I have boxes of stuff. Lots of boxes of little things. I have little boxes for red things, green things, and orange and purple things. I have boxes of badges, bottle tops and buttons. A separate box for novelty buttons. This is a box of tags, labels, tickets and bits of paper. Now I see everything as drawing opportunity. Now I say to people 'oh don't throw that away, I'll save it...' and they just go 'yeah, yeah, to draw'.

Illustration Friday; SAVE.

cool for cats

Wagonized and I are having a camera-off. It's like a face-off but with drawings of cameras. I lose, dismally, with this dull attempt. I obviously wasn't paying attention at cool school that day. However, France gets top marks for THIS very, very cool drawing of Tom's camera.

Must try harder.

your blog needs you

I'm sorry, my lovely little blog, but I've got a confession to make. You know I've been neglecting you recently? Well yes, it's true; I've been seeing someone else. He's called MoleyX and for a while, back there, he turned my head. I don't know what happened. You know, you and me were going through a rough patch. I seemed to be spending more and more time with him and things just happened. I'm over it now though. Really. It was just a silly fling. It's not like it is between you and me. We have too much history. I promise to make it up to you. I promise to pay you more attention. Will you forgive me?
