You are keeping me from painting! I thought I would comment here as well! I look at the subjects you draw and wonder where you will go next and you have the amazing ability to constantly suprise - I love your work - makes me smile :-)

They are all beautiful, but I believe the Treetop Flyer may be my favourite - I love the woodgrain and I'd quite like a pair myself, thank you!

bubblemunch said...

OOOO - you said you were drawing Pixie boots!
Love them all; difficult to choose a fave - maybe the button down. Am hoping for a platform pair to be developed for short fairies ;-)

What fun. Your attention to detail is always drool-worthy. (I like the Tree Hugger and the curly-toed Cat in the Sack ones. :-)

Barbara said...

If I had drawn just ONE of those I'd be in awe of myself. To have so many in such a wonderful composition is an incredible accomplishment.

Amusing and beautiful, a winning combination. How long does a piece like this take you to draw? I work in pen and ink (dip pen) and each drawing takes me forever. The boots and the bonnets make me think of the paper dolls I loved as a child.

And some beaks are longer than others.

I like it very much.

Andrea, I have been following your sketching blog for about 6 months. You blow me away with your creativity and ingenuity! I never know where you are going next. I love not knowing and being surprised and delighted. I appreciate you and your work.

Teodora said...

I don't know which I love more - your imagination or your drawing abilities

Pippa said...

Oooo I need to see this up close! How about a couple of photographs of it as well?

Sarah Ketelaars said...

love the 'tree hugger' and the 'cat in a hat' - wonderful! Maybe you should try a photo if you can't get a good enough scan? Wonderful, funny and charming work as ever! Thank you for sharing it :)

Cheers, folks.

I've replaced the first scan with a (hopefully) better one. So, if you click on it you should get a better view.

Kay, 20+ hours. A long time over a few days.

Thank you all, guys. I might add some photos of this soon. Cheerio, my ducks.

petescully said...

Love this one. 'The changing man', 'the heavy sole'...nice! surprised you didn't have 'the foot of the mountain' too...

Rita said...

You are so talented, fanciful, and meticulous! I love discovering what you have been up to! :):)

Margaret Ann said...

Dang! LOL :)

littlemithi said...

Oh wow! Andrea, can you find a boot maker to actually make me some of those??!!??

Wow! I've only just found out about your blog through Twitter and haven't got time to tell you how wonderful it is - I'm off to revel in some more. Absolutely fantastic!
