In the last few days I've been tagged twice. Lillan and Felicity both nominated me. So here goes, 6 unusual things about me;
  • George is my favourite Beatle.
  • Sloths are my favourite animals. I adore them. One of my ambitions is to see one (in real life) and, if possible, hold one. Aaaaw.
  • For one year my job was picking roses in the desert.
  • I love bad tv and films. In fact the badder the better. I'm talking really terrible; shaky sets and awful acting. I for one wish the BBC would bring back Eldorado.
  • I have a phobia of horses in water or swimming horses. Eeek.
  • Some years ago I was sat next to a stranger on a bus travelling from Bangkok to the islands in the south of Thailand. A couple of years later I was on a bus travelling from Israel to Egypt and was sat next to the exact same guy!

And I never even got to mention that Kermit was my ideal man - yep the frog. Well I now must pass this on to six other bloggers. So Teri, Mariana, Karen Blados, Chasing Tigers, Plain Jane and I Need Orange it's you!

Oh wow, sitting next to the same guy is definitly weird!!! I did enjoy reading this Andrea.

And what makes you think there is something weird about me?! :) :) This will take some thought sorting out the weirdest.

Andrea, thanks for tagging me. It's so weird to realize people read my goofy blog. Can I use that?

Wow, that stranger on a train incident is totally weird. You must have felt as though you were in the 'twilight zone.'

Thanks guys! The stranger on the bus was paricularly weird. I love stuff like that though. Really gets the imagination racing.

Thank you to the commenter whose comment I somehow managed to delete. Overworking is certainly something that I do. I'm going to keep on practicing the line drawings.

Your work is so beautiful and clean....

As a non-sketcher/non-drawer, I have what is no doubt a very dumb question. Do you use an eraser a lot? I can't imagine being able to make such neat work without a LOT of erasing!

Thanks for visiting my blog -- I'm thinking about weird things....

I admit to using an eraser quite a bit - not in this one actually. I usually will use it to put the shape of something in; after that I don't tend to need one. There is often a bit of debate about the eraser issue amongst some of the other illustrators - so definatley not a dumb question!

Look forward to hearing your wierd stuff. Cheers!

you've been busy after all, hurrah. I love the lines in this though I definitely love your crosshatching work as well. This is so simple and clean and somehow quirky and cheeky if that doesn't sound odd -- i love it.
