Swine Flu! / sorry for poor blogging

The world isn't as big as it sometimes seems, not when you're a flu virus anyway! Use those hankies folks!

I see it's been a week since my last post, and I've been very tardy in replying to comments. This might be the case for a week or two as I'm busy working on a competition entry and I'm determined to give it my all! Apologies to those who have left a comment and haven't received one in kind as I usually try to do. I'll post more on the competition when I have chance! Thanks as always for stopping by :)

The optimist's glass / IF "impossibility"

Whatho! I'm back after a few days away and what better way to get things rolling again than with an illustration friday (ok very nearly missed this weeks, but better late than never...). Truth be told this little graphic popped into my head last week but I think the "half full" side of things just about fills the IF bill ... The Optimist's Glass has a nice ring to it don't you think...? Perhaps the title of a nove/...? I've really been on a hand lettering typo vibe of late, maybe my next post will actually have people in it! :)

Happy Hols...IF "talisman"

I was looking at doing an Easter Island moai to mark the upcoming break anyway, and I was glad to see the dictionary definition of talisman as an object thought to possess magical properties. I'm sure the Polynesians on Rapa Nui felt the moai were talismanic... and that's good enough for me! I was on a bit of a roll after the "home sweet home" post and wanted to play around with a similar text treatment and use of watercolour texture. A lot of fun to do and both these posts came together nice a quick which is always a plus. Have a happy few days off whatever your beliefs (or lack of...:)

Home sweet home.

My good friends Kev and Vicky have upped sticks and found new digs. Good luck you krazy kids, see you soon!
