don't look back in anger

The sun is out here, in the UK, this weekend, which means one thing. Actually, it means a few things. Across the country people are wiping down the white plastic garden furniture. Back gardens are filled with the smell of burning sausages on disposable BBQs. People dressed completely inappropriately for the time of year and temperature. Oasis tunes blasting from kitchen windows. And, of course, copious amounts of alcohol being consumed.

Me? I'm drawing pixie shoes. It's a worry.

Actually, I'm going to put this drawing away for a little while. You're probably getting as bored with it as I am. I promise I'm going to draw something a little more normal next. I was thinking of that sugar sachet collection. It's all relative, right?

Thanks, ladies.

Pippa, I just wrote on the Flickr upload that I really wish somebody would make the things I see in my head, 'cos I really would love those acorn shoes!

Cheers, girls.

Does the amount of alcohol consumed have anything to do with writing about pixies? LOL I would think that a sunny day in April is just cause for outdoor celebration!

I never get bored by your drawings! Love the pixie shoes!

We have the same phenomemon in Portland, Oregon. I am amazed at how many people wear flip-flops if the sun comes out. I am from LA and would freeze (even mid-summer). ;)

I would kill for some shoes with acorns...SO cute!

If it makes you feel any better, its the same scenario in the states. Beautiful outside, drawing inside.

I wish my wife would draw shoes instead of collecting them, wondeful drawings as usual. I really like the woodland theme in your work. Amazing!

Are you going to be offering copies for sale of this picture? I think my daughter and her little girl (who both adore shoes) would love it.
