find yourself waiting just to fly fly fly

Click on drawings to view and read. Actually it's probably better that you don't.
A couple more spreads from my travel themed Moleskine. More nonsense that I find flows quite freely out of my pen. I never read this stuff back. I can't sleep if I'm close to finishing a drawing, and as I put the words in last, it usually means I'm writing them late at night. Very late. Which is why it rarely makes sense. You can see the set, so far, HERE.

Hi Andrea!
I'm all for sending you something with a stamp attached. Just let me know when and where.

I'll even send them in some mail art (see http://oldpaperart.blogspot.com/2009/09/try-try-again.html) if you'll email me a snail mail addy... ddcachets@gmail.com I've a few (actually, A LOT) of stamps that I keep on hand for art related usage. I haven't incorporated all that many of them lately (actually, NONE) so you might as well give it a go.

I finally got to put the print I bought of yours in it's display home today. It looks even better than I imagined.

So, I figure the least I can do for your making your wonderful art available is send you some stamps. :)

Email me the postal address you'd like and I'll get them in the post this week :)

PS. These images are divine!!! I can't wait to be able to purchase more of your work. I wish I could mail you my walls and let you go nuts on them, I'd love to live in a house wallpapered in your magic!

Hiya! I can send some Irish (used) stamps, Kiwi/New Zealand (new) stamps and probably other used ones as I generally hold on to them for some craft project or other.

I bought a converse sketch from you last year and love, love, love it (so much that I can't decide on a frame for it but still take it out and admire it when I look at my bookshelves where it currently resides) and wanted to say hello anyway! :)

I'll send you a postcard from Lincoln with a stamp on ... er that won't work, I'll take some photographs in our local Lidl, will that help?

I can't believe you came to Portugal and you missed out the famous Chicken Piri-Piri from Guia! That's the name you can´t remebember, right? Well, I hope you've learned a lesson "Don't leave the best for last". The good thing though, is that now you'll have to come back.
I love your work. Best wishes from a dedicated follower of your blog and art,
Helena

hi Andrea, I have just re-discovered your blog after being out of the loop for a little while. I'm always impressed by the order and clarity of your work, and I love reading the little anecdotes! I know exactly what you mean about foreign supermarkets. It's an unsettlingly seductive pass-time! Glad I popped back in- your drawings are very engaging (and extremely good!) :)

I was recently in Basel and spent some time wandering round the supermarket - I love foreign supermarkets. I like your late night meanderings!

Thanks, everyone.

Helena, of course, Guia! I might add a little note to this page. I'll have to come back.

Cheers, my dears.

I have that magnet! I lived in Portugal for two years and I never heard of piri piri. Now I feel like I missed something. :(
