there's a thousand things i want to say to you

I did warn you that I'd be boring you further with this travel themed Moleskine, didn't I? Oh, right. Well, I will be. I'm like a dog with a bone when I get hold of a subject. I just cannot let it be.

So, anyway, here's a couple more spreads. Today, boys and girls, we will be covering London and Italy. In a roundabout sort of way. And, just out of interest, does anyone know of a UK stockist for this licorice? It's amazing.

Now, children, I won't tell you again, click on the drawings to view.

I confess - I didn't click on the picture and take a closer look... Having sat on the naughty chair for ten minutes I have to agree with Tim - the transparent paper in the tin is awesome!

Andrea, Andrea, Andrea. Quit putting your work down. We wouldn't return to your blog if we (speaking for the whole internet world out there) didn't find your art fascinating.

I have NEVER been disappointed with what you've shared with us—even when it included an illustration of Mr. Obama.

You are gifted.

Why isn't there a book of these travel pages? They tell a story in the most beautiful, quirky way. Surely someone would publish the story of your (or a fictional characters) travels? It would be a great way of telling some kind of mystery in ephemera.

Just so you know, I want to be just like you.

Hope that doesn't make me stalkerish.

I think your noticeboard style drawings are my favourites - so many things to look through and study. This is wonderful! I also love the little sketch of the spire. And the licorice tine is brilliant - did you stick a real receipt onto the page, inside the tin? It pops out so much - really brilliant!

Thank you, folks.

I've been offline for a few dyas. Some technical hitch, and it's been an absolute KILLER! I can't believe how much it is possible to miss the internet, and, of course, all you lovely people. Thank you all. I love ya!

I've just got to say...and I know I've already left one comment here...but that transparent paper inside the tin is astonishing. So believable it is totally unbelievable.

That is just incredible - I had to click on it to look at teh detail because I didn't believe that you hadn't just put the tin in a scanner. I know we're all raving about the paper - what blows me away is how well you've done the type - it's so damned accurate - how the hell did you do it? Please tell me you traced it or used gridlines or something that would provide some comfort to us mere mortals.. :-)
