Hello! Its been a wee while!
In my last post I was just about to leave for China - China was great, saw some awesome things, including the great wall! It certainly lives up to its name!
Anyway, just two days ago, I returned home from my travels, back to Bonny Scotland. Phew! What a mind blowing year! I have seen so much, and learnt so much. But more on this later...
My latest drawing - ahhhh how nice! pencil and paper! I have a scanner for the first time in 12 months! thats why most of my posts have been digital paintings. But it felt great to sketch again and colour it in photoshop.
And what, you may ask, does this drawing portray? Why its me of course! I am in awe at the glorious glows from the ember (rust) hued national drink of Scotland that I have not tasted in over a year! Whiskey??? NAY!!! Irn Bru!
What the heck is Irn Bru?
Its a Scottish soft drink. Its bright orange. It looks and tastes of rusty water... well, it tastes better than that.
For those who are unfamiliar with Irn Bru (or Urn Burn as i heard someone call it once) here is a picture of it:
Alas, I forgot to take a photo of it glowing in a glass. Ach, next time. I wonder, fellow bloggers, how many of you are familiar with Irn Bru? If you are please tell me, and tell me where you are from! I am unsure if this beverage is available outside the UK...
But anyway! Travelling has ended. (for now. I intend to make a habit of it) Missing new sights, missing new friends, and missing my girlfriend. But my new journey has just begun! For I have a little secret project up my sleeve. Im not saying much just now, but Ill give some hints. Book. Drawings. Travel! Yeh! Im making a book about my travels. An art book. With pictures. Im gonna post about its progress here.
Now, before I sign off, I thought I would share a wee video with you all. Enjoy!! Ken :D
