HEEEAAAATHCLIFF!

Where's Heathcliff? Answer tomorrow.

Went on a sketchwalk at San Francisco's Land's End, where I claimed to know the way to the ruined house on the beach. I didn't. Sliding, skidding and muddiness ensued. But the treats at the cafe afterwards tasted all the better for it. Right, fellow sketchwalkers? Right?

Edit: I should mention I didn't draw her in forced perspective, she fell in the water and got a bit bendy.

This image does invoke a gasp! Well done... you keep one upping yourself. How many have you done now in this style?

This is why I don't sketchwalk anymore. Not that the writing walk doesn't do much to improve my footing, either, heh...( or writing driving )!!

Love the emotion here!

My God, he's fallen!The wind has taken him to the rocks below. Poor, poor Cathy. But wait!Luckily someone had dumped an old matress earlier and he's about to spring back.Phew!

Lovely drawing Sparkey.

TFE - this brings back a cherished memory of my nephew Michael at age 8 drawing a man drowning, with another man on the shore strecthing out a very looooong encircling ( and shoreward-returning) arm to save him.

Stunning! The movement in the clothes and hair truly wuthering!

Been there, got the t-shirt. Or at least I would have if there was one but there wasn't. Maybe there is now. It was more than ten years ago. I speak of course of one of the several fell races that goes over those dark dank moors. A fell race is where people who should really know better run over bog and tussock through rain and sleet and get covered in mud for fun. Then they jump into a freezing stream and wash themselves off. It's all a prelude to fish 'n' chips and beer. The sport is known as fell running and is extremely popular in Yorkshire. People claim to see ghosts, ufo's, little green men and hear strange noises in the whistle of the wind. Creepy place. Strange rock formations. These days, running in the crisp clean Alps, I shiver just to think of it.

Terrific illustration. You could do the entire book, easily. I can't wait to see the other characters.

I just love these. When I go out walking, my imagination has begun to impose your creatures and characters all around our neighborhood.
