Wintergarden

I'm a massive fan of the writer and director of the "Reply" series, I loved "Prison Playbook" and of course I had no chance but fall for "Hospital Playlist".

There is something about the way characters are written in these dramas and about the relationships beteen them (not just romantic relationships) that makes you fall in love with each and every one person you meet during the series. Even when the ending is happy, you feel so sad when you have to say goodbye to the show and to a group of people that feels so real and like a family.

The end of "Hospital Playlist" season 1 leaves so many open questions that I can't comment on the whole story yet. I can only say that season 2'd better come soon haha

BUT my absolute favourite ship has sailed just at the end of the series, and that made my year lol

Happy Birthday DeviantArt!

deviantArt has been my longest lasting social network and I still have a lot of love for it, in spite of the fact that it got worse in more recent years.

For deviantArt's 20th birthday we have been all invited to redraw an illustration by Loish in your own style.

This is my entry for the redraw challenge.

Mount A Rescue - Fred Egg Comics

It was a nice surprise when David Robertson asked me to draw a guest page again, this time for his new comic book "Mount a rescue".

Needless to say, I was very happy to do so. I never know what kind of text I will be given but that's part of the fun. I get to draw things I wouldn't have thought of drawing myself.

It was also lovely to find the book in my letter box when I came back from visiting family; it cheered me up a bit from the post-holidays + pandemic blues.

Six Disney Villains - The Six Characters Challenge

Spending so much time in isolation made me even more keen on global drawing challenges.

This time I took part in the Six Characters Challenge, but I changed it a bit and decided to draw six Disney Villains in isolation.

I am incredibly pleased with the result, even if I am alone in this haha

Anne of Green Gables

A birthday card for a wonderful friend who is a big fan of Anne of Green Gables. I enjoyed drawing it and I hope it made her happy at least a little bit.

Psychedelic A&E

I can't afford doing art for a living unfortunately, but looking at the bright side, having a day job means that I can choose to draw only what I like.

A fellow London geek I know sent me the following request:

"My sister works in A&E in London and I would like to order a drawing based on a picture as a surprise gift. I was thinking of her with some psychedelic background".

The kind of stuff I really like :)

The result wasn't what I expected (I couldn't get convincing psychedelic colours with watercolours) but I'm told it was an appreciated birthday present. And I am very glad :)

I was told that just a few days after her birthday, lovely K showed symptoms of Covid-19 infection. I can only wish her a speed recovery and bless one more time all the key workers who are risking their life everyday to help others.

Watercolours, white gouache and black fiber-tip pen. Size: A5.

Unicorn

Sometimes a leftover piece of paper carelessly filled with a drawing has the best results :)
