Ilustratour, part 3

This morning on our side of the "claustro" in the Museo Patio Herreriano (as opposed to Satoshi Kitamura's side...we sit in the wing just behind the giant king and queen), we dissected a 193os coloring book with glee.
Then we each made a picture around our scrap, of whatever came to mind. (I am still obsessed with the storks. Have I mentioned the storks?) It was fine fun. During morning break some people went outside for a "smoke and meat picnic"... nothing like a hunk of salami and a cigarette to get you going. Apparently.

this is wonderful!

dear sophie

i once saw a set of your drawing/painting/collages at the ray hughes gallery -- it was of a family emerging from the sea, i think, years ago -- but unfortunately i was at uni and had not yet hit my art-buying potential. oh how i have regretted this ever since.

it is so great that you have this blog and i can see your pictures all the time. :)
