I am somewhat stressed at the moment with everything on my plate… but of course I still TRY to fit in a bit of ultra quick sketching in order to record the exciting but crazy period leading up to a big trip. These are really just for me as a record – not supposed to be pretty pages – perhaps good training for getting a sketch down in a ridiculous short period of time.
This is the second sketch that I did – the first spread I got carried away recording a conversation we had in the office and forgot about leaving space for the sketch. The conversation confirmed that the crazy thought I had about getting one of these wasn’t so crazy- I discovered that someone I work with, actually takes a coffee machine with him on holidays. I said “why is it acceptable to be fanatical about coffee…but not tea?” To which someone else replied “People who drink tea are ODD!” Ok… I am happy to be odd.
As much as I love America – there is no way I can make a cup of tea by putting water through a coffee maker! Sorry- I shudder at the thought!
BTW the kettle is smaller than my sketchbook.
BTW2, I won’t tell you about my sketchbook crisis tonight….
I think this will be the last journey for this folder- starting to get rather worn now. I just know that the last week(still a number of weeks away) will be crazy- so starting to get as organised as possible now! This sketch was down in an instant(looks it too!)
I am used to overseas travelling in autumn and winter so it is a novel concept to think of cool outfits. I love wearing dresses on hot days- but they have to pass the hand wash in the basin test!!!
TW My dresses don’t look like this at all…
