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.

These are lovely -as always-.. you are truly an amazing artist!
I love these... and I actually love Brussels Sprouts too! Have a very Merry Christmas!
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!)
I had no idea Brussel Sprouts were such a big deal in the UK! Good thing I like them cuz I'd love to hang there someday. :o)
Rhyme Me a Smile
It is so true, we don't like sprouts in our family yet my husband still buys them for christmas dinner. I love your drawings of them though, can't wait for my book to come as well
Merry Christmas to you too! Love the drawing, but I'm glad we don't have that law here :-)
I love your sprouts! I also love to eat them, my family thinks I'm odd!
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.
Your drawings are really amazing, Happy 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!
I love this. I always love your drawing. You were the one who inspired me to draw.. I may not know you personally but Thank you for inspiring me to draw
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.
I had no idea Brussel Sprouts were such a big deal in the London
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.
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.
Your "take" on things in general is most fascinating to me!!!
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!
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.
Thanks, look forward to it, its always great to get a gift in January
Andrea---Hope you had the most wonderful of holidays. I'm so looking forward to seeing where 2011 takes you!
