KALE BOY


Unfortunately for me and possibly more for you, my drawings are normally done using delicate pencil marks, which means it's tricky to see when you scan but you can see it in real life I promise!

I found an exellent book at work which I sneakily stole from my old unsuspecting ladies called 'To see Oursels' which made me laugh :) it's absolutely full of old black and white photo's (my favourite) of scottish people with plenty to draw from...

I particularly liked Kale boy which I intended to do in ink but I found his face too addictive and before I knew it I'd done it in pencil and to use a pen all over it would be a shame. He would look quite funky with a fair isle background, or stars....hmm?

I love your drawings so so so much Fe, the delicate pencil lines are goregous! I love the sound of that book, and i'm equally in love with his jumper. (i'm going through a jumper loving phase, sort of the wrong time of year though...) xxx
