This drawing took about two hours. I was watching and listening to an old concert by James Taylor, filmed by the BBC. His voice is beautiful, smooth like honey. I LOVE that feeling you get from hearing a voice that touches you. Imagine being able to do that with pen or pencil.

So I've spent the last few days drawing and yet this lousy hoover (I mean vacuum cleaner) is all I've got to post. I'm trying to not get frustrated about it. I'm looking at all the bad drawings as 'growth'. Hum.
Out of interest, is it only the Brits who call vacuum cleaners 'hoovers'?

It's my birthday today. Thought I'd get a post in before it's over. A pretty unremarkable day really apart from the rain. It has rained and rained and rained. I'm watching and listening to The Who at Glastonbury. It's raining there too. Wondering about what the next year will bring. Who knows.
"Only love can bring the rain that makes you yearn to the sky. Only love can bring the rain that falls like tears from on high."

I did this drawing a while back. It was for an idea that I have for a kid's book. It's loosely based on the house where my friend Toby grew up; in the stunning, yet dark, hills of Whitland, Wales.
I dreamt about Toby last night. It was New Year's Eve. He was carrying a packet of bacon and was scared of step ladders. We were on our way to Neil Young's house for a party. Then I woke up. I tried to force myself back to sleep just to go to the party at Neil's place but that never seems to work, does it?
Oh, and there IS a step ladder in this drawing. I love coincidences like that. They really spark my imagination.

(BTW, it is the same dead bee from the last post. Poor bugger.)

I'm really disappointed with this drawing actually. Quite uninspiring. I had a much better drawing in my head. I don't like the composition and no matter how many more chains I threw at it it didn't seem to get any better. Oh well.
Aaah, remember the days when Snickers were called Marathons and everything was good with the world?
