cedar island dreams

A study of the local Gulf Islands landscape. The ink part was done with carbon black ink in a fountain pen with an ultra fine but flexible nib – really nice to draw with! A quick wash of watercolour brought it to life.

Tom’s evocative haiku! (I took the title of the piece from the haiku – not vice versa.)

"skating" to the island

They are arriving to the island in style! Despite the now infamous kiss from King Frobag, Cindy is getting more snuggly with the stranger… and check out where Big is riding!

A recent comic from Johny Wander will be appreciated by cat lovers everywhere!

As usual the poetic continuation of the story should arrive in the comments soon!

UPDATE: Check the first comment to read the next part of the story!!

an " 'island fling"??

OK that’s a terrible pun but I couldn’t resist. Remember that the island folk had a Celtic sounding name and then there they were dancing… so the highland fling came to mind… and yes, they’re out walking their birds. Not sure why… Hopefully Tom can help with that when he sends in the next poetic segment!

a helping hand... or fin!

Well, we left our little Coracle taking on water and in some trouble… but I think she has the sense to have a backup plan and friends to help her out of difficulties when they arise out in the expanses of the seas – not really a “silly cow”!! And don’t worry, she’s just having a little nap while her friends tow her to the island! Well, OK she may be a bit embarrassed…

Please click on this one to get a good view – this setup isn’t kind to horizontal format drawings!

Here’s a another link from Cute Overload – I picked it because it seems almost weird enough to fit into the world of our story…

Looking forward to the next instalment of poetic story? Don’t forget to check the comments!
