Just what I feel like doing. Although possibly in a huge, soft, four poster bed with fluffy pillows and soft blankets, rather than a pile of books. Isn’t it wonderful how cats can sleep in the strangest places? Nobody relaxes quite the way a cat does, all those liquid, floppy, warm and purry muscles… Just chilling. : ) Hand drawn with graphite pencil and coloured in photoshop with a few of my own textures thrown in for good measure. PS All titles and authors names are fully imaginary. ; )

I love books so much, my home is full of them. There is nothing better than a pile of new books just waiting to be read, and a quiet day to read them in. Such days don't come around too often in my life, but I can dream. : )

Do you see tiny pandas or giant poppies? :) I had no internet for five days. FIVE DAYS. I don't feel amazing. I don't feel magically content and re-connected with my family. I feel frustrated, unproductive, mad. And my creativity is low.... Anyway, this is what I did with that time. Not much to show for five days of downtime, is it?

This pattern took me ages, long enough to make me wonder what I was thinking even starting on such an ambitious (for me) project. But my garden is full of proteas, and they are so lovely, I find their shapes and colors endlessly inspiring, so it had to be done. I couldn't ignore them anymore. : )
