Sketch of the day in my art journal are Stinging nettles and Dock leaf.
These are so good and healthy to eat. You can fry it with oil and salt to taste or make it into a tea. Time to go foraging in the forest…

Every handcrafted object is made with love and is unique.
Sketch of the day in my art journal is of a metal water pitcher from the Greek Larder restaurant in London. The food’s pretty good there too.

Sketch of the day no 875: Ankh. The symbol of life.

Ankh: symbol of life

The secret of the Ankh reveals its magic to the believer.
So I’m sure you’ve realized that I love the British Museum and I had to go back again. My first trip was too rushed and my second trip was near to closing time. I feel a third trip is due at some point.
Sketch of the day is the Ankh. The symbol of life from the British museum collection. This is one of my favoirite symbols of all time and I truly believe in its magic x

A night in Penang. (The end.)

A short story By Brian Martin-Onraet and illustrated by Tiffany Choong.

Previously on “A night in Penang”: Felicity the flamingo, Gary the gecko and Sock the Gremlin have asked for Stéphanie Lung’s help to free their friends abducted by animal smugglers. Their first stop was to liberate Twiggy the giraffe and Tony the vegetarian tiger. As a guard came shouting they all fled to the street.…

“They will die if we do nothing,” Felicity said, pacing on the crazy pavement by the pool.

“Felicity, tokek,” Gary said, “please stop pacing, tokek, you’re driving me crazy, tokek.”

“Gary,” Felicity said, “stop with your tokek, it is driving ME crazy.”

“Sorry, Fel’, it’s a tokek, I mean, a tick. Tokek. I agree with you, tokek, they will die, but what can we do? We’re helpless. Tokek.”

Felicity said nothing. Kept pacing around the swimming pool. Looked up at Bulan, the Moon, in full splendour in the starry Penang night. She stopped. Looked at the pool. Then at Bulan again, looked at Gary. Started pacing again.

The fault lies not in our stars,” she said, “but in ourselves *. WE have to find a solution. Sock? Any thoughts?”

“Gan’t garely greathe, let alone think,” Sock said.

“Take your bl..dy mask off, for Pete’s sake,” Felicity said. Sock removed his mask. Coughed and said: “It’s the forest fires, the air is… choking. Cough, cough!”

“What a lot!” Felicity said. “I repeat: Our. Friends. Will. Die…”

“If we do nothing. Tokek. We know. Tokek. What do you suggest Fel’?”

Felicity stood still. Looked up at Bulan again.

“I know! I know! There is a solution! Stéphanie! She can help us!”

“The little girl?” Sock said. “But, but…”

Sketch of the day no 860 in my art journal: the whistling wader or Curlew


Sketch of the day in my art journal is the whistling wader.

Thank you to Brian for naming him William 🙂

The curlews /ˈkɜːrljz/, genus Numenius, are a group of eight species of birds, characterised by long, slender, downcurved bills and mottled brown plumage. They are one of the most ancient lineages of scolopacid waders, together with the godwits which look similar but have straight bills.[1] In Europe “curlew” usually refers to one species, the Eurasian curlew Numenius arquata.

Curlews feed on mud or very soft ground, searching for worms and other invertebrates with their long bills. They will also take crabs and similar items.

Curlews enjoy a worldwide distribution. Most species show strong migratory habits and consequently one or more species can be encountered at different times of the year in Europe, Ireland, Britain, Iberia, Iceland, Africa, Southeast Asia, Siberia, North America, South America and Australasia.

The distribution of curlews has altered considerably in the past hundred years as a result of changing agricultural practices. Reclamation and drainage of marshy fields and moorland, and afforestation of the latter, have led to local decreases, while conversion of forest to grassland in some parts of Scandinavia has led to increases there.[2][clarification needed]

The stone-curlews are not true curlews (family Scolopacidae) but members of the family Burhinidae, which is in the same order Charadriiformes, but only distantly related within that. ~ WIKIPEDIA
