never ever

I believe that, in the past, I have vowed to never ever draw anything that incorporated a light design on a dark background ever again. It really is a bugger. If you don't believe me have a go.

But, there again, I do believe that I've also vowed to never ever reveal any more of the contents of my underwear drawer.

I'm calling this one EDM #193 - Draw a close-up part of something. You can see my set of challenges, so far, HERE. I've also been interviewed this week by the lovely Laura of Make Do And Mend. And, you can read that HERE.

Should I cover my eyes and apologize? **wink** Once again, you've turned something so ordinary into something amazing. At the risk of sounding terribly "cheeky" I have to say "Nice knickers!" :D

Loved the interview and nice to see your work in a narrative, really impressed - well done you! I love the complexity of the underwear drawing - I seriously would not know where to start, it must have took you an age to work it all out! Your pen work is truly staggering and an inspiration. Keep producing magical stuff!

Oh, too cute! Love the touch of color! Never would have thought of drawing this - great idea! I think this one is going to become my second favorite of your drawings (the first being the working table you drew a while back, with a lot of stuff and books on it).

Thank you all, folks. I'mso glad you like my knickers!

This is the LAST time I will be flashing my pants. Well, maybe...

Glad you liked the interview too. It's a very cool site. And, always well worth a visit. I was very flattered to be asked to participate.

Jules, I know what you mean about seeing some of those oldies. This set has built up since the beginning of my blog! It's nice to see some of them again (only some!), and it's quite a colourful set.

Jackie, thanks for letting me know about the Chronicle Books competition. I didn't know. That's made my day.

Cheers, guys and dolls.

Congrats! and i just looked again at all your sketches, they are charming! I especially liked the one of the bed, perhaps because I just cleaned out from under my 80 year old mothers bed and closet and discovered amazing little treasures and cards and letters from back as far as 50 years!! I have 4 children's books written, what is the range of rates for each illustration??
