Me and Tea

January 15, 2013

 

Tea eh? Tea is just great.

I love tea so much I made a comic about it.

That right there is a prime illustrated example of the beneficial effects of having a nice cup of tea. Personally I like coming home, sticking the kettle on, getting that tea bag in there (with a sweetener as I am an old lady) putting the hot water in and squishing the hell out of that tea bag like there’s no tomorrow before putting in a wee bit of milk. Y’know sometimes a nice cup of tea just sorts you out. That’s what inspired the comic actually. Maybe it’s the effects of being somewhat a caffeine addict but after my first sip I tend to feel a lot more focused, relaxed and ready to do whatever work I’ve got on that day.

Jings I could bang on about tea all day, actually nah, I’ll just draw another picture. I actually used real tea to illustrate this.

Actually the other day I got an offer to exchange one of my pictures for a box full of tea from Chash Tea and as you can imagine I wasn’t going to pass that up JUST LOOK AT IT ALL.

I’ve sampled most of these and I have to say this is grade A tea which has been superbly made with care and attention.

Right I’m off to put the kettle on.

Next week: Biscuits.

Amazing Invention #17

January 28, 2011

 

I am human, I sometimes make mistakes, sometimes I even forget about my tea and by the time I’ve remembered its there its super cold and not very nice.

So I have invented the heated coaster!

I have a feeling this will change lives.

Neils Day Off.

March 11, 2010

Hello everyone hope you’re all well!

I have lots of stuff to show today, I was going to spread it out over a few posts but I’m away at the weekend so I’m just gonna cram it all into one big post :)

OK, first things first,  I know I’ve been prancing about the subject of my next exhibition and trying not to give away too much, but with 3 weeks to go now’s about the time to explain what It’s going to be like,  and doing that for me are the lovely hosts Made In The Shade via their lovely blog which is here, please have a look!

Also today I found some time to make a couple of sketchbook entrys!


am i the only person that thinks this?

Also today I got a couple of things in the mail, including a massive guillotine of death for cutting paper and a bad ass bench stapler so i can get to work on making some zines :)
But the best thing that came was this…

It’s a robot pencil case! (unfortunately my dinosaur pencil case just had enough and is now in a sad state) I got it from a lovely shop on etsy and im just chuffed with it, my pens have never been happier!

anyways I think that’s enough for today,have a great weekend!
