EDM #7 draw a tin, bottle or jar from the kitchen

I got this tin from a trip to the Colman's Mustard shop in Norwich. Yep, I really know how to have a good time. I live life on the edge.

WARNING: Ladies never try to apply make-up whilst on the bus. That's what the lady with the baby did. And look what happened to her. Poor cow.

Hi Andrea,
Great post. I just love the tins with the pictures! Collect them in fact, but I haven't tried to draw one yet. And you've set the bar high. This is fantastic. I love your whole blog.

Hi Andrea, just popped in to say thanks for visiting my blog and your kind comments. First time at yours I believe and my you have so many *pretties* to look at =) Your style is so dreamy yet detailed, wonderful stuff - I love it.

You seem very accomplished in your work too, how long have you been illustrating? When did you notice your *style* come about or was it a gradual cumulative kind of thing? I'm working towards something as I progress in my art, not sure what at this point though (lol) so I'll keep my day job until things come together better.

Well I've went on far too long -take care and thanks for the wonderful inspiration!! I'll visit again soon and oh yes I love tea too =)

Yes, I can see that you live on the edge ...

This is such a wonderful drawing. Such life. It should be framed and decorating a lonely wall.

This is a very nice rendering. Nice detail and I am sure it took you a while to complete.

How adorable! I love unique things and this is so cool. I really enjoyed looking at the close-ups of the people on the bus. I see what you mean about the lady with the baby. lol! Too funny. Awesome job.

This is fantastic -- your style perfectly suits this kind of illustration!

I have a similar tin that is a plantation truck full of coffee workers. It's a Starbucks tin (from way long ago before Starbucks was as ubiquitous as Mc Donald's) and I keep dog biscuits in it.

WOW! This is so awesome!! I know what Bird's Custard is -- my friend told me about that stuff - and there actually are some markets in the States that carry it. As I've told you before, you take me down memory lane sometimes - thanks!!

Wow thanks everyone.

This drawing took AGES! All these wonderful comments really make up for all the time spent. Thank you!

Laura - I have been illustrating all my life although sometimes, along the way, I've forgotten how important it is to me. I hope I'll never forget again. It's a funny thing - the style thing. I've never thought that I had one of my own. It's only since starting this blog that I've begun to see some kind of 'style'. I too am working toward something and I too am not sure what that something is - I think it's the best way to work. Something will surface through your work - and that thought REALLY excites me!

Brenda - Birds custard is still going strong in this country. Not in this house though!!

Cheers guys, thanks for taking the time to comment.
