Please mind the gap

Some very quick sketches done on the way to the football this evening. You might be pleased to know that the legs with the heels don't belong to the guy with the beanie hat - it was just unfortunate placement on the page!

Today hell froze over. It must have done, because in a rare act of domestic goddessery I was in the kitchen baking. Scared yet?

Sketchcrawl #25

Well, today was more exciting than expected! I had to work this morning, and thus didn't sort out to go and join in the London sketchcrawl group. I was a bit grumpy about this as I've NEVER managed to make it to a crawl. So, finished work early and thought I'd drive down to Portobello instead and do a bit of sketching on my own, and then call into the supermarket for groceries on the way home.

Sketched a little, then started sketching the paella stall (which has always fascinated me, even though I've never tried paella - it always smells so good!). The men running the stall smiled and winked, then one of them asked if I was writing a book (my sketchbook is a revamped vintage book - looks like a proper book from the outside). Nope, I'm sketching. He then asked if I would scan it and e-mail it to him when I was done, and then offered me lunch!

I was polite and said no to the food at first, but by the time I had finished the smell had made me ravenous so I shyly accepted some chicken paella. It was DELICIOUS.

Clearly I didn't get anything else drawn after that, but what an exciting day!
