London life ... we're all mad here ... only levels may differ.

Last Sunday I moved in with my boyfriend - an experience I actually gave up on ever having. But here we are, and it was also the first time since that I had to do it without my furbaby. It still feels strange and empty at times. 
However, even though my last weeks have been busy with moving sorting and other issues, I finally took the time (and courage!) to watercolour my drawing of her. Space for improvement, obviously, but thankfully didn't mess it up!

Channeling my inner Katniss Everdeen... So the weekend before last I went with a few friends to an introductory morning of archery in East Dagenham.

Not too bad for a first proper trial with bow and arrow 😁

Since I find a little time right now, here the elephants for my friend at work, for her empty bedroom wall.

Elphaba creating the Emerald City, sacrificing her skin, herself? Not canon, I know, but this image somehow came to mind when I started sketching her at first. And I somehow like it very much. What can I say? I'm a sucker for bittersweet stories.... #wicked #elphaba #oz #emeraldcity #yellowbrickroad #wickedwitchofthewest #musical #lfrandbaum #fandom #villain #green #witch #drawing #fanart #watercolour #ink #drawingpens #london #londonlife
Finally finished my elephants! 😁

When you managed kind of a cool drawing but it's supposed to end up as a watercolour but you REALLY like it, so you try drawing it again... Which never seems to be as nice as the first time... #drawing #elephants #secondtry #watercolour #animals #london #londonlife #illkeeppractising
When you realised you never even doodled a Tardis, so now you need to draw one... Then you decide to use your aquarelle pencils but found that she looks great before a drop of water touched her...
Guess I'll stop right there now.

And the last one for today. A friend from work asked me to draw a portrait of her dog, Ruby.
I'm really enjoying using the drawing pens I've used on the last few ones. Never used them before but suddenly they are opening a whole new drawing experience to me.

A few drawings I did at work when there was nothing to do - there was LOTS of spare time recently. 
What do you think?

It's been a while, it's been busy, and I've been sick a few times (and yes, that xold sore from Halloween was still a thing almost three months later...) And since I'm lying sick in bed again - barely slept and with my head feeling as thick as a cotton ball - I thought I could finally post some things subsequently. 
Also, I started drawing again this year after - possibly years - I haven't really done anything in that area. So watch out for more to come.

Who said a massive cold sore would ruin your Halloween make-up? Ha! Not for this Wednesday Addams! Happy scary Halloween!
