Illustration Friday - Old Fashioned

I've been working on some more hand lettering designs for my portfolio based on old proverbs and sayings.  Apparently this one which refers to mediaeval falconry first appeared in print in 1670!  Pretty 'old fashioned' then, so I thought it would be quite fitting for this week's topic.

Illustration Friday - Proverb

I always enjoy an opportunity to draw some hand lettering so here's a little illustration for this week's topic.  I don't eat too many apples myself but does it count if you eat them baked in a crumble?  Now that I could eat every day!!

Matchbox Labels No 7

It's Friday so I just thought I'd share some of my favourite matchbox labels, check out these cute Polish tv cats! No doubt I'll be watching some (rubbish) tv later! Wednesday is the only decent tv night here now that Mad Men has started again! Hooray!

Here are some more cool cats, don't ask me why they are smoking pipes and I wouldn't recommend it but I love these graphic images!

Talking of cats, check out my new website side link, it's my cat drawing now animated and pink! Thanks to my husband for putting it together for me:) He now works for Pixar, can't you tell, ha ha!

Bernice was busy studying the main menu but all she could really think about was dessert!
Just a quick one for this week's topic. I couldn't resist drawing another woman with a wacky updo!
