one hundred posts old

I remember, some time ago, Suzanne Buchanan celebrating her 100th post. Back then I was just a couple of months into my own blog and a hundred posts seemed like a life time away. Well, it's surprising how quickly it comes around! And, what's more, I've loved every minute of it.

I'm going to be little self indulgent now; I've decided to re-post my favourite picture from these last few months work. I have produced a lot of work in these 100 posts that I'm proud of. Work that would never have been created if I hadn't joined the Everyday Matters group and started this blog.

There are a few pieces that came to mind when thinking about my own personal favourite. But there was really only one picture that stands out for me which is this; my spotty brolly. I know that if I had seen this drawing on somebody elses blog I'd be thinking "Damn, I wish that was mine". And that feels good.


It also seems fitting that my favourite was a piece of work that I created in response to an Everyday Matter's Challenge (draw something that folds). To see the rest of my EDM set click HERE. Cheers!

Happy 100 posts!! I remember this drawing ... my only problem is that I say exactly that : "Damn I wish that were mine," but for pretty much all of your drawings!

Congratulations on reaching your 100th!! It would be very difficult for me to choose just ONE of yours as a favorite -- but the spotty brolly definitely would be among the contenders. I remember the first time I saw it -- I was AMAZED!!
