Tea [cups] for Illustration Friday

I love Tea. Not only for its taste and warmth, but for the ceremony it seems to promote. There is nothing better than sitting down with an old friend over freshly brewed tea served in your favourite teacup-complete with saucer [to catch the biscuit crumbs of course!]

My tea is with only a dash of milk and no sugar. I think I have it this way because i would taste some of mum's tea as a child and that's how she had it-Actually I'm pretty sure my Grandmother has her tea the same way too!

What's in your cup?

[I cut these shapes from some vintage rolls of wallpaper i found at the most wonderful 2nd hand shop/salvage yard. what a find!]

Drawing a song for Illo Friday

I've always liked the idea of drawing a song, so for this week's Illo Friday i thought i'd illustrate a line from a song that has always sounded to me like it was waiting to be drawn!
Tell me if you know that song- and the album its from [ooh- its like a quiz! except no prize sorry!]

oh i might still repost last week's Simple theme, i have been sort of over it but maybe i will regain interest......

Something for Illo Friday?

This is a quick attempt at a replication of the simple and beautiful image that appears at the end of Le Petit Prince by Antoine De Saint-Exupery.
I first read it in French class at school and used to understand every word when i was fluent. sadly i am a little rusty on my French now, but at least the book has beautiful illustrations!
will hopefully rework and republish......
