at the top is...

'Exercise Book' print available HERE.

So, in my last post I said that I was going to draw, but unfortunately that has not happened. Life has got a little crazy and got in the way of art. I suppose it gives me another chance to plug my wares. Sorry.
I also wanted to say a big THANKS for the response to my giveaway (see last post). I've never been so popular! And, of course, to announce the winner. Drum roll please; the winner is Karen Blados. I can't tell you how excited I am about sending this to Karen. She was one of the first drawing bloggers that I came across and is a real inspiration. I'm sure that most of you know her work, but in case you don't pop on over to her blog. You'll be impressed.
Also, I was so overwhelmed by the response that I decided to give one of my prints, above, as a second place prize. That went to Jeanne Grant. Thanks, folks.

This was the piece of work that inspired me to set up my blog, ironically it was Karen Blados who also provided some awesome support. Spooky ... I am sooo looking forward to 2009!

Andrea, I check your blog often because I adore your style, but this time thank you for directing me to Karen's blog. I've admired her work on Flickr, and had not seen her blog. It's a wonderful world, eh?

Yay ! Congrats to both winners !
Thanks for the Karen Blados info, I think I am getting addicted to drawing blogs. Poor Danny Gregory has taken a sabbatical from his to draw more, as he'd ended up spending too much time on the PC. Pity we can't do the same with daily life, eh ?

Thanks, folks.

Fiona, I feel the same as Danny at the moment. Sometimes life gets in the way of drawing, and that's not good.

I'll have to do another giveaway sometime. I felt ever so popular!

Cheers.

Andrea - thanks for the fab print, I recieved it this morning. It was a birthday present to myself! I'm going to put it over my desk to distract me when I'm supposed to be working!
Thanks again,
Sophie

Salvador, I only have patience for drawing. Not much else.

Sophie, thank you. I'm glad you like it. I like this one too.

Hi! I'm a new visitor today and I love your journal pages. I saw one with some blue jeans (on an older post of Visual Research and Dev Ctr. blog) and was blown away.

So glad I found you!

You gt me! Lack a little of violence and vulgarity. At least a gun draw..
The last “cute stuff” i’d appreciate was the Sargent’s Lily.
Do i gt worried?

Can you tell me more about the background of this drawing? Can you show me a photo about the original one? Was you the person who saw that Just for men TV advert? And what about the writing says "I've had my AJ thing since I was in school I had a friend called Abigail Jones"?

Please write me soon with your answers. Better if you e-mail me: reklamolvaso@gmail.com
