Round - Illustratration Friday Word of the Week

The word this week is Round.  When I was little my brother had a "Round tuit", which was basically a piece of round wood that hung on the door and had text on it along the lines of "I am a round tuit.  You always said that you would do [insert large list of chores] when you got a round tuit now you have a round tuit you can."  How I coveted that "round tuit" and how I admired its word play, marvelling at the cleverness of it - round tuit = around to it!  (NB that exclamation mark belonged to my seven year old self). I wonder if the round tuit will ever make a comeback, surely some geezer is churning them out for some market somewhere. Or maybe someone could make a round tuit app. Think of the market - all family, friends and partners of the procrastinator who has everything (well nearly everything).

Water ladies

Bit of a nautical theme today, must be because the sun is shining. And, maybe a smidgey bit because I love the sea, whatever the weather.
PS Swim girl's eyes are a little too far apart, perhaps that should read 'swim alien'? Actually, I can kinda picture her green, or blue. A bit like the sea.

Wellington in postcards

Here is a series of Wellington postcard drawings I did. Not that I've done anything with them yet...

Let it be said, I love Wellington, madly, deeply, truely...but not in a gushy way...

And lastly, no your eyes aren't playing tricks (although you may be sozzled, no way of me knowing), the final, bit wonky card. Ahem, I said WONKY. Not anything else, mind, gutter, out.

From the archives

A combination of hoarding and a love of drawing with my trusted sharpies has led me to have piles of drawing books, so I thought I'd scan in a few pics from the 'archives' of things that were my fav at the time. Here is one from 8 years ago. Gordon Bennett, doesn't time fly when you have a stationery addiction. X
