Taking a Leap

A couple of new drawings for GPV which I hope you will like. I have been drawing lots just not posting- apologies! It's been pretty hectic my way finishing off commissions and tying up loose ends on the wedding front. I made the big decision to resign from my full time job which I wasn't particulary enjoying so as it stands my last day at work will be Monday 24th May followed by a week of pre-wedding fun with my parents who will be flying in from England- providing that volcano doesn't decide to spit any more plumes of ash out.
After the wedding I have decided to head home to my beloved England and project manage the opening of a new coffee shop- I get to design the website, decorate the walls and plates and generally be an all- round creative bod. It's a super exciting project that I just couldn't say no to.
So I think I will enjoy the sights and smells of England for a couple of months then head back to Oz to set up the rest of my life :-)

I'm quite excited to be going home to my old bedroom and having a poke around at all the possessions I have left behind. No doubt I have completely forgotten what I own so it will be like a treasure trove, unless my sister has claimed all my possessions or my parents have thought it was rubbish and chucked it all out. It has been nearly 3 years since I have been back home to England and considering I left with a small back pack with the intention of a short working holiday in Australia it's going to be quite surreal.

Wow Chrissy, i hope you have an amazing wedding and time back home (nice one, quitting your job too!). Too bad we won't get to catch up when I'm in Sydney in 2 weeks, but hope to see you again soon :) All the best, Ben
