i heard it in the wind last night

Oh well, I didn't get around to a new Christmas drawing this year, so the sprouts are getting another airing. For those of you from outside of the UK who might be wondering why sprouts, well, I'll tell you why. In the UK it is the law that on Christmas day you must have Brussel sprouts. Honestly. You can be locked up unless you have at least one on your plate. And nobody wants that.

Hope you all a have a wonderful Christmas (assuming you celebrate it). Thanks for all the visits, follows and comments. They are much appreciated. I'll be back with loads more drawings very soon.

And, once again, a big thanks to those of you who have bought my drawings, zines and prints. You keep the wolf from my door.

Merry Christmas everybody.

I'll be going out and picking up some sprouts today (among other things)! They are indeed a necessary ingredient.

Have a merry Christmas!

I love Brussels sprouts but they are one of those love-it or hate-it things, most of my friend hate them! Great drawings and Happy Christmas! (The excess exclamation marks are due to Christmas cheer!)

Andrea, these are really great, but I have to admit, I would much rather eat your drawing than the actual brussel sprouts .. lol, I just can;t stand the way they taste.
Merry Christmas

Andrea, I love your drawing, and real Brussels sprouts as well. I'm not sure why you have to eat them on Christmas, though. Merry Christmas!

Oh, well in that case I'd spend a lot of the holidays in jail. Better than eating a sprout!

Happy Holidays and Best Wishes for 2011!

Merry Christmas and many blessings in the New Year!

I don't think I've ever had Brussels Sprouts, nor do I know anyone who serves them on any occasion - one of the freedoms we fought and died for here in the states (ha ha).

You are an amazing talent.

Thank you thank you thank you, folks.

I hope you are all having a wonderful Christmas (if you celebrate it, of course). I'll be back soon.

And, in case you are wondering, yes, I've eaten my quota of sprouts this Christmas. But then I do rather like them.

Cheers!

I just started following your blog and I love your sketch style. it's very refreshing :)
I, however, would not eat one of those no matter how pretty you can draw it.

Im sorry to leave this message on here but i can't email you as my computer isn't set up for email. I haven't received my book How to draw like a nut. I'm really excited for it and hope it hasn't gone missing in santas sack but thought I should let you know. I have seen some great reviews for the book so well done and sorry if I sound like I'm whining, its not intended.

Merry Christmas, and thank you for sharing your talent with us!
And, just so you know, I'm planning to buy some of your work just as soon as the wolf backs away from my door. In the meantime, thanks again for being such an inspiration!

Thanks, folks.

No problem, Jill. I'm sorry but there is a delay on the How to Draw Like a Nut due to the Christmas post and I've run out of envelopes - and because of the Christmas post I can't get hold of them fast enough! It'll be with you shortly, though, and thanks for ordering.

Cheers, my dears. Lots of new stuff happening here very soon. Keep posted.
