Experimentations, self congratulatory nonsense & distractions

ocd has resulted in this - my other tumblr for when I become a proper grown up or magically become super rich

and a touch of this - old habits die hard

and now there is another - dedicated to my love of adornment

stalk me in real time via the wonders of twitter

or ask me anything

Has just heard that the fantastic Illustrator Ronald Searle has passed ago at the age 91. I always remember his drawing of the St Trinian girls from the books.  His style of work and imagery was always beautiful and creative adding humour to his work.  Really is a great lost but he work will always be remember. 

I should have mentioned that I will be briefly flooding your dash with his work.

Bye Bye, Ronald. I’m going to miss you.
It’s partially your fault I went to art school … but that’s okay. I’m recovering nicely and still think your books are completely wicked.

Ditto for all of the above. His illustrations brought me so much joy as a child and still do today. I’d actively hunt down any books illustrated by him and repeatedly devour every detail.
