Howdy good people of the world. This sketch is called Sleepy Slug. It is a true expression of how i have been feeling this weekend. I have been so busy working in my normal job as well as working on pictures and trying to run as well that i have finally crashed. I don't like to admit too often that i am human and eventually get worn down from over working so i feel like a sleepy slug but it is nothing a couch and a kettle won't sort out for me. Ha Ha until next time hope ye take time to take some rest for yourselves. Thanks so much for coming in and viewing my work i am sending loads of love out to the world hope you catch some of it. :)

I decided to draw my typewriter. It sort of reminds me that i am better at drawing things than having to explain it as i always get tongue tied. I often wish we lived in a society where you could draw your explanation rather than speak it. I love this typewriter it reminds me of an old house i lived in for 1 year it has the same smell off it. My landlord lived beside me in a massive house and I lived in the tiny one beside him but he was so good to me and it was on of the happiest years of my life. I was very sad to see him die of cancer after that year, i had to move out. Even though it was only 1 year of my life it has made the biggest impact so far and i was glad to have experienced it so that is why this picture is titled Little Achill. Hope you like it.

I used to write a lot of stories and poems when i was a child and up until my late teen years. I have been itching to get back to it lately so i was delighted to get this antique typewriter as an early birthday present. I said i would share one of my first poems with you called The Lonely Button. I am going to put my own little story and poetry book together and illustrate it and display it at my exhibitions. I am looking forward to seeing what else comes out hope you enjoy my first poem and go easy on me i am a bit rusty he he.
