one week like this a year'd see me right

(Click on image to view)
Phew. PHEW. I'm back. I've had a wonderful, full on, couple of weeks. Full of music and laughter and wine. And fun, of course. Over the next week or so I'll try and get back to all the emails, comments, messages etc that I've received recently. Right now, I'm exhausted, after a long long drive.

Here's a little something I've been working on for approximately three months. Not a solid three months. I've been working on it bit by bit. Off and on. More off than on, I might add. It's a tribute to my best buddy. Thanks for a great time, ducky. Long may you run.

How big is this drawing? It's really super as usual. I have tried to emulate your work in my drawings this week. It's much harder than I thought. You don't give yourself enough credit. If you are interested in seeing my effort it is here.

Your work is top! I'm suffering from - wish I had thought of that... perhaps i could steal that idea...my work is pants... and arrived at 110% respect for your huge talent, and how can i make my work sing! ps. I might just pinch a bit of it hmmm?

Thanks, everyone.

Freebird, it's an A4 drawing. Don't know if that means anything to you in the States? I shall take a look at your blog in a moment.

Steve, you're crazy. Your work is excellent. But, I know what you mean I suffer from those kind of thoughts all day long too.

Cheers, folks. Glad you like it.

Looks kind of like our frig. I would never have looked at it like it was a piece of art.

Welcome back Andrea. And again, I ALWAYS love your work.

P.S. Did you bring anything back for me?

Your drawings are quite amazing. I love that you have tons of shading and detail without overdoing it and making it too busy. The perfect balance of positive and negative space. Very well done!

Monette Satterfield said...

Wow! I love looking at your work - it's eye candy.

Thank you all, folks.

This drawing makes me happy, even though it was an absolute bugger to finish.

Cheers.
