Hot And Still

13 Jul

13 seaside

Suddenly there’s a heatwave and everyone’s out on the beach, in shorts and swimsuits. It’s gorgeous when the sun shines here. The best place in the world. Pity it rains 90% of the time. I went for a paddle and sat on the steps awhile outside the Civic Centre with my feet dangling in the water and did a quick scribble of the kids playing in the gentle waves. The sea was glassy and the horizon merged into the sky. Hot and still, not like a British summer at all.

    Great drawings – I also love the mix of brown paper (packaging ?) on the white.

      Thanks, yes it’s ordinary brown packaging paper stuck into the sketchbook with Pritt stick glue.

    I`ve finally figured why I find your illustrations so wonderful: they bring me back to the books of my childhood, when illustrators conveyed the essence of the story with a few deftly placed ink strokes. Love the mix of brown paper on white too. Wonderful.
