Fishing for compliments


I've been living in Australia for over two and a half years now...so I decided to go to the RTA and get my English drivers licence changed over to a NSW one. I am now a proud owner of a NSW drivers licence. Joyus. I don't drive much as I tend to fear for my life because people in Sydney drive like absolute blind nutters and I would like to live to the ripe old age of 100. Did anyone read about that guy who was driving a Ford Explorer and it got stuck on cruise control at 100 km/hr? How bloody scary is that...

Above is a new drawing called fishing for compliments. A gigantic lady dipping her rod into a very small pond.

Oh one more IMPORTANT thing...have a read of this unbelievably cheeky act of plagiarism by Alannah Hill of logo work that Tabitha Emma designed for our Once Upon exhibition. I'm just astonished that a high street shop thought they could steal her work and go unnoticed. I am positive that the matter will be resolved because there is no way they can excuse themselves for such blatant copying. Shame on you AH! If you are interested there is a whole website dedicated to uncovering such acts of plagiarism.

Here's a bit of the Arctic Monkeys with their strong northern accents....
