it's funny how these old feelings hang around

So, I've been a little distracted recently. Partly because I've been working on something that I've been wanting to do for ages. I wasn't going to say anything about it quite yet, I don't want to tempt fate, but I'm really rubbish at keeping secrets.

OK, if you insist I'll tell you. Next week I hope to have a little (teeny tiny little) zine for sale. It includes a few of my favourite drawings from my Moleskines. They seemed to be some of your Faves, too.

This drawing is, in a way, a promotional piece for the zine. All of the things in this illo are clues to the drawings that will appear in the zine (does that make ANY sense?). Maybe you can spot some of them amongst THIS LOT.

Or, just come back in a few days time to see some photos of my very first zine. If, of course, I haven't jinxed it, by letting the cat out of the bag, before it's actually been printed. Yikes. WHY did you make me tell you?

Andrea, it must be fate that brought me to my computer tonight to write to you. It has been way TOO long since I've been in touch and I wanted to see what you've been up to. I can see that you've been producing wonderful new work (that's no surprise). I am so excited to hear about your zine! recently I've been toying with a top secret project of my own and after reading your post (great drawing by the way), I know that I must follow through with my idea. Will it be available through your Etsy store? I want a signed copy! Take care and talk to you soon.

How EXCITING! And what a great drawing. I really love it when you add colour to your biro drawings. Looking forward to the zine!

Simply brilliant! The amount of consistency and control you have shown with ballpoint pens in this one... it's just stunning! And the different colors is an impressive touch. Now I am kind of hoping that they will come out with different colors of ballpoint pens ^^

The drawing is lovely considering the elements you drew. I love making zines, although I have never had one "printed." I usually just make all originals when I do a swap. Looking forward to seeing yours!

Artsy Martha said...

Your artwork is amazing. I just love it and cannot believe it is done in ballpoint pen. It is so soft and wonderful. You are an inspiration.
