This is great Andrea. I really love the designs you've got going on in the corners. They fade out so well into you main drawing. Lovely.

Plus, its super cool to see your notebook over on Flickr!

That's a cute radio, and the background is also interesting, but what is a "wind-up" radio? I'm only familiar with electric cords or batteries.

Love your blog and your beautiful artwork!

Such an interesting radio Andrea! Lve the whole background thing also.

And......me too, what is a wind-up radio?

Please send me an email, I lost your address.

Thanks guys.

I quite like this one. There is a bit of a story to it - on Flickr.

The rado is for use in the bathroom where there is no electric sockets. You actually wind up the radio (on the back) and it works until it runs out of power. Like in the olden days I guess?! Environmentally friendly too. If it runs out of power during your bath you can just wind it up some more without the fear of dropping it in the water and killing yourself. I worry about that kind of thing!! Yes, I know - I have issues!

Cheers!

I am as ever, in total awe of what you achieve with the humble biro!
Fantastic!
By the way, you've been tagged. Hope you join in and play along. You'll find the rules over at My Sketch Blog.
Take care

I am totally amazed by your drawings, you really can handle a biro and a Moleskine! I loved the Flickr album too, you really keep those sketches together, in design and color and idea... Impressive!

Oh my god ... I can't believe it's taken this long for me to catch on to your Joni reference here! Haha ... It just popped into my head while I was commenting on your latest post! The penny must have been floating around in my mind somewhere before it dropped. :-D

I also meant to say ... Great drawing! Sorry, I guess I got a little too excited about the title.
