“If I can finish in time, I’m going to have a go at the current “LoopdeLoop” challenge.” And what’s the subject this time?  “Shoes”

Shoes? Well now you’re talking. I could go on forever about Shoes.

 

That Interwebs Scare

“Remember I thought I broke the Interwebs with my animation?”

I’m not speaking to you. You were very rude to me in that last post.

“I only said that what you said about ink not mattering was stupid. Not that YOU are stupid.” You called me stupid. “I didn’t Mum. Look … I just want to tell you that I didn’t break the Interwebs.

My animation is up on the LoopdeLoop site for the Fear theme.”

Well hoopdie-hoo.

 

The Matter Of Ink

No more Queenie drawings? “No Mum. Inktober 2018’s over now. It’s quite tiring you know.”

But you cheated on that last one, didn’t you. You said you would use that Kuretake brush pen for every drawing …

 … And I saw you use a dip pen for that last one, the Pirate. “Oh that. The ink that came with the pen ran out and the bottle I bought as a refill just wasn’t the same … I couldn’t draw with it. “Well I just call that being fussy. If you were a proper artist it wouldn’t matter what the ink was like.

“Mum. I am just going to say this out loud this time. That is a really stupid thing to say.”

 

Fear and Guilt

“But nothing’s happened. And nothing new has gone up on the challenge site for two or three weeks …”

Ha! That’s it then. You’ve broken the Interwebs!

Still On Pause

So have you been filming your Angry Old Woman, dear?   “No, Mum. I’ve been drawing an animation for a LoopdeLoop challenge. The theme of this one is “Fear”.

Fear? Well that’s typical of you dear, I must say. Who in their right mind would want to make a cartoon about fear? … Apart from you of course.

Watercolours

Well … where are these watercolours then? Are they landscapes?

2018-02-25b

“No. They’re toys.. or rather they’re model figures. I’m a bit fascinated by them at the moment…”

2018-02-25c

“… Did you know that you can buy a tiny Angela Merkel? A teeny, tiny Angela Merkel… complete with smart phone?”

2018-02-25d

What on earth is a smart phone? And who’s Angela Merkel?

“Sorry, Mum. After your time.”

Artistic

What did you mean when you said you’d got the watercolours out?

“What do you mean by being kitted out with a crayon and a fancy headscarf!”

What you do … I do. I’ll have you know that I was quite artistic too. I met your father at art evening classes, remember.

“I know. But I’m sorry Mum, I never thought to ask you what took you there.”
