show me where it's at

A bit rubbish, I know, but I just thought I'd share this little story with you whilst I get on with a couple of big time consuming drawings. A couple of posts ago I was bemoaning the demise of an old trusted ballpoint pen. The ancient old blue biro was seen off by a drawing of Adidas trainers. I was also saying how difficult it is to replace an old pen when you become so attached.

Anyway, the next day, whilst out shopping I found this pen on the floor. It's a lovely blue ballpoint pen by Faber and Castell. And the logo on the pen? Adidas.

Karma, it's karma... you and this pen will do great things together I predict.

It's a sign! You should totally let Adidas know...I mean, just by showing them the adidas shoes you've drawn, I'm pretty sure they send you more than just thank you notes =)

I'm sure addidas would probably give you, at least, a shoe.
