I am a lonely painter...

I'm not well. I'm feeling very sorry for myself. Two viruses in a few weeks. My nose feels like I've had two red hot pokers poked up it. My throat feels like I'm swallowing razor blades which, incidentally, I've seen somebody do. It was on a street in Barcelona. It was impressive and yet disturbing.

So, I have not done any drawing this week. I pulled this one out of the archives. I created this little fella some years ago. It's not my favourite, but I like the overall composition and colour.

By the way, that was the guy's act - swallowing razor blades. It wasn't some terrible cry for help!

Aw, Ulan beat me to the rest of the Joni quote!

The best thing I've found for a cold and sore throat is a large glass of vodka and lime with plenty of ice. Much more effective than paracetamol!

Hope you feel better soon.

Oh Andrea...I'm so sorry you feel bad. Maybe you need to put on some cozy little sock/shoes like this little guy is wearing. I know that would make me feel better :)

Hope you feel better Andrea,

And maybe the latest update of Aussiejourno's Weekly Blog Awards in a few hours will hasten the process.

Nice work all round.

Aaw thanks for all the kind comments, folks. I have a chest infection and acute sinusitus (that very probably isn't the way you spell it). It follows a two week gastric virus, and it has totally wiped me out. Still, I have managed to do a drawing today - finally. Finish and post it tomorrow.

Thank you all again.
