holidays - yay!

I am super excited because tomorrow my husband and I fly to Argentina for a 2 week holiday in the Andes and Buenos Aires. I'll be sketching throughout so I'll hopefully return with some great drawings to share. I'm particularly looking forward to the giant cacti (cactuses?) and the llamas! So, in the meantime, here's a neat drawing of a man hiding behind a cactus by Jacob Stead - you should really have a nosey around his website, which is full of wonderful drawings like this one.

angela keoghan celebrates life of pi's oscar success

This image caught my eye on the homepage of Angela Keoghan's delightful website. I haven't seen the film yet, but I loved the book and the film is on my list of things to see. Angela has really captured the drama of the situation in the Life of Pi while incorporating the humourous presence of the Oscar statue. See more of her witty and whimsical work on her website The Picture Garden.
