A couple of weeks ago my parents handed me a manila envelope and stood there staring at me with strange grins on their faces while I cautiously opened it up. Inside were a bunch of drawings that I had done for my grandmother as 'thank you's' whenever she had sent me money or presents. I tend to get asked quite a bit as to when I decided to pursue art as a career. Judging from these inept little drawings, it must have been a little later on in life because I don't think there was a whole lot of talent going on here. Imagination, yes.
I don't even know where to begin with the top drawing. I mean, who gives their grandmother a drawing of a masked gunman? Maybe I was bored that day and decided that I needed a little excitement on my street and decided to draw out my fantasy? Who knows. But it's weird. The second drawing at least seems to show my interest in fashion. I like how I took 'Paris' to be a country rather than a city. There's much debate in my family as to what those jagged brightly coloured things are around them. Some people think that they are Christmas trees, but I think that it's mulit-coloured spotlights. The only thing that redeems this piece is the poncho that the Canadian girl is wearing. I seem to recall that I owned that poncho.
Anyway, I can imagine that I've frightened everyone enough here, so I'll go do something useful. I should have an original available over the weekend. Think chocolate, think fondue....no masked gunmen.
