Animals, Cockerel, Jez Eden


WE HAVE LIFT-OFF!  I'm back in the land of the internet, as of just a few minutes ago, and two days earlier than they forecast.  I have felt like a bereft teenager for days.  Thank you for your comments and fellow-feelings about the problems with the service providers - in fact the problem was at the telephone exchange, and just our phone having the problem.

Only a couple more days with the animals theme, which I am quite sad about.  Perhaps we can re-visit it some day.  My cockerel, from my own photo, is in coloured pencil.  He's a very proud fellow.

I'm hoping to finish another 'serious' drawing I'm halfway through, but with four different hospital days out of five this week it will probably be a couple of cartoons for the last day.

So glad to be back with you all.

  1. And glad we are to have you back! I can well imagine your "teenaged angst" during the away time! Your Mr. Rooster is quite proud looking! Really a lovely job you've done in colored pencil Jez. Not easy those, so I've learned in Sketchbook Skool.
