Chips - aaah chips. Good old British fare. Not fries or frites but chunky chip shop chips. Nowhere in the world makes chips quite like we make them here in the UK. I don't mean that as a compliment or an insult - but somewhere in between. When they are good they are very very good and when they are bad they are horrid. The smell of chips, to me, is the best thing since sliced bread - which, incidentally, is the ONLY bread to make a chip buttie with. Sliced, white bread.
(Translation; UK 'chips' = USA 'fries'. USA 'chips' = UK 'crisps'.)

Beautiful job! I love the other sketches here as well.
Cheers! Mary Ellen
WOW! I love your chips - the volume you achieved in the painting of the fries and the amazing job with the lettering on the paper.
Sweet details. I am really impressed by how you got the color (or should i write colOUR?!) of the 'chips' right. You make me want to try my new colored pencils.
AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!1 YOU SHOULD BE THRILLED!! I'D CERTAINLY BE!!! I THINK YOUR ARTWORK IS GLORIOUS!!!!
yummmm those look delicious!!! great work
Your work is so beautiful -- and so filled with character, too -- smooth gradations of colour... I'm really envious, but in a positive way!
Haha! This is great! Makes me want to go to the chippy right now .... I especially like the newspaper - the daily mirror? :)
Hello and thanks everyone! I must say that I am pleased with this picture. I enjoyed doing this one and I had some fun with it! Littlemithi it is certainly NOT the Daily Mirror! It's more of one those local newspapers, you know the kind. Where any story, no matter how small, will do! Cheers.
so real... you've made me hungry! :D
Absolutely brilliant! Yes, chunky chips in newspaper are the best! Fabulous work on your blog, I love the mushrooms!
Excellent art! I love the shape, subject and humor in this!
I so love looking at your work. You have such a unique and strong style, so full of personality...and it's technically just right too. Such a pleasure to see.
I love all the work on your blog, you have such a unique way of rendering things, and the colours you use are fabulous. You manage to tone them down ever so slightly to a very soft and yet rich colour scale, and it´s all so expressive. Love it!
Wonderful chips, and the detail on the paper is fantastic as well.Chips look as if they could jump into your hand.
Yummm - but did they go cold while you drew them?
Wow! Gorgeous! I too am in love with your style ...
we call 'em 'chips' here in oz. And we call your 'crisps', potatoe chips or just chips.
Andrea, the newspaper is amazing, such detail and perfect lettering. Totally, totally perfect.
I really like your style. Very clean, they're lovely!
That is so pretty D:
