The Curious Case of Benjamin Button The Curious Case of Benjamin Button by F. Scott Fitzgerald

My rating: ★★★★☆

Nice short story. Interesting how the people around Benjamin told him he had to simply try harder at not growing younger.

Tags bit ink little paint paper sketch time



I bought new paper to draw on, so I decided to do a quick sketch to see if it works. It handles the ink and paint nicely, though next time I need to wait just a bit longer before I erased my pencilmarkings after I inked…

Tags drawing ferry food little pens tea things time trip


I recently went on a trip to the UK and made a few drawings. This first one I made while we waited for the ferry to cross over with. As a kid I got sea-sick a lot so this trip gave me the opportunity to see if I’d still get sea-sick. See how I try to give it a positive twist?

Yeah, it didn’t go so well…

We had some afternoon tea and some food at Tiny Tim’s Tearoom where I made a drawing of a chair and a birth-bath. Halfway through my drawing things got moved.

Another time we had tea and food at Cafe 22. I loved the little teapot/cup set and we searched around for them at the shops, but couldn’t find them. I ended up ordering a set over the internet, ah well.

We also visited Mike and his husband and played around in the pottery. I messed up a few times and still ended up with a cute little bowl. Hurray!

We went to London for a bit too and I tried drawing St. Paul’s Cathedral from Tate Modern. Lots of wind, so my pens rolled of the table and my pages flipped over. That, and I misguessed the amount of space I needed. Ah, well :)
