Other Lovely Lady Portrait

Im definitely on my way to destroying this little pretty. 

I have cleared my head at last
pen on paper

currently working on some typography ... simple and naive. Just like an empty head.

 I have cleared my head and it feels fantastic. I feel amongst clouds! 

Happy friday to you all! My saturday post is here early. Friday afternoons are the next best thing!  I have a busy weekend far from home.

Portrait of Desley




Portrait of Desley Gilbey
Pen on Paper

How can i explain her? Stern and hard but soft in the middle. Bloody complicated but awesomely simple too. The kind of looker everyone assumes is a snob due to her beauty and stance. She is not, or ever was any type of snob, quite the opposite. I don't think she will ever see what a beauty she is from her own eyeballs.

We had a brief falling out about nothing a long long while back. The kind of falling out when I don't automatically get offered the front seat of the car when we go driving type.  She is living overseas now. I though of her as she will be in town next month for a visit.


 Here is her portrait. 

I hope she likes it.

New York I love you, but you're bringing me down.




















Screw NY. Vietnam has my heart. On my recent return from you Im feeling a bit lonely. I miss you.  I hope to you see you again soon, until then, all I have are my pics and the constant visit to my local Vietnamese restaurant, but it's just not the same you know?
