Just in case someone was wondering if the earth opened and swallowed me up...
Life is getting in the way of drawing & blogging and I think there’re some busy months ahead of me since I’m flat-hunting and need to move before this year ends (the good thing about this is that I’ll have new views to draw from! ;) ).
Besides my computer died in a very unlucky time (there was a transportation strike going on) and I was computer-less for almost three weeks...
And being swamped with work doesn’t help either...
Perhaps I’ll be able to slip some sketch sometime but I don’t expect to get back to regular drawing & blogging till I’m settled in my new home (though I may post some photos about the process).
Thanks for your interest!

This is an old illustration from a long forgotten project of mine (I only managed to do three out of 22 Arcana- ahem).
I thought of this when i read this week's theme for illustration Friday, I think it fits perfectly :).
Description of The Fool card by Joan Bunning
"As Card 0, the Fool lies at the beginning of the major arcana, but also somewhat apart from the other cards. In medieval courts, the court jester was someone who was not expected to follow the same rules as others. He could observe and then poke fun. This makes the Fool unpredictable and full of surprises. He reminds us of the unlimited potential and spontaneity inherent in every moment. There is a sense with this card that anything goes - nothing is certain or regular. The Fool adds the new and unfamiliar to a situation.
The Fool also represents the complete faith that life is good and worthy of trust. Some might call the Fool too innocent, but his innocence sustains him and brings him joy. In readings, the Fool can signal a new beginning or change of direction - one that will guide you onto a path of adventure, wonder and personal growth. He also reminds you to keep your faith and trust your natural responses. If you are facing a decision or moment of doubt, the Fool tells you to believe in yourself and follow your heart no matter how crazy or foolish your impulses may seem."

Since I use to spend the first 5-10 minutes scaring myself at the sight of the blank page and wondering how on earth I'm going to draw that every time I'm about to draw something, I've decided to record the first mark on the paper for any drawing (It's easier on Flickr with 'notes'). Maybe I'll learn something. Maybe not.

pen on watercolour stained moleskine
I don't think I actually see anything 'til I get into the kitchen to make my first cup of coffee.
(and no, there's no giant mutant faucet in there,
I just got the proportions wrong :) ...)

pen sketch on moleskine
I asked my mother to look for (and bring me) an old box with these much loved playmobil toys... The proportions are off (the figure is supposed to be slightly smaller than the horse, and his head is too big) but I need to show something for her effort ;) ...
(Note: The little marks on the top of his head are teeth marks...)
