Flolloping with tiger ...

Not dancing but "flolloping" as Sunshine describes it ...

Tea for two, two for tea ...

Just finished off something I was working on from almost a year ago ... Actually painting and not digital for a change!

Life imitates art ...

Or is it the other way around?

The joy of cycling

This is it ... went up in Howies Bristol shop yesterday and will be there for two weeks, along with lots of other cycled themed goodness. The private view last night was really busy and prooved to us how many random people we knew in Bristol (and London) who all knew each other too ...

Those of you who follow the blog might recognise the figures ;)

We took some photos - but haven't really looked through them -and I want to go back to take some photos of other people's work. So that will be a future post.

Tandem Love

Ha! Another three weeks goes by without an update ... oh wo-es me ... To tell you the truth, I HAVE been up to lots (similar to the last post). Its just not been very 'art/illustration related' and I would like to keep this blog a bit more art focused. Edit: and oh yes, today is this blog's 4th Birthday!!!!!!!!!

I've been thinking about starting a separate blog for Littlemithi and Sunshine's other adventures (like TANDEMS!) but just haven't got round to it as we've been too busy enjoying the summer. But now as September creeps up on us and Sunshine has to be back at work fulltime (he's a university lecturer) soon, and I'm very officially freelance/unemployed/housewifey; maaaaaybe a separate blog is called for.

Anyways, I HAVE been trying to draw for the Bristol Cycle Festival group exhibition at Howies (see panel on the right) that I've signed up for. I would very much like to do something tandem based ... but I'm not feeling particularly inspired at the moment (want to be riding tandems, not drawing them...); and have also come down with a headcold which makes my brain a bit mushy. Oh well - hopefully something will come together in the end ... here's some sketches:

And in other news - we have already clocked the 100mile mark on "Bramble" (our tandem has a name now!). We both love it and have become real tandem geeks. We've been trying to update a google map with some of our longer rides as we get used to her. See our progress below (longest ride to date is the blue one - to Bradford-upon-Avon and back; a total of 54 miles in one day):
