Dogs are better than humans..

While I was in Berlin I bought one of the best sketch books I have ever seen/smelt - always important to smell a fresh book right? A pricey €27 from the amazing but sweet Jesus how it was worth it! Different textures of paper, different colours and all sorts of grids and lines!

Here are the pages from the christening of said book.

I've just returned from a 4 day trip to Berlin with my Boyfriend, another fabulous Birthday present!

I last visited Berlin when I was 14 and had some distant memories of the city and what I'd saw and learnt. Well a lot has changed in 12 years that's for sure! Berlin was remarkably quiet for a Capital, cheap yet still as historic and interesting as the first time around.

We crammed in quite a lot during our trip - a free walking tour, covering Brandenburg Gate, Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, Hitler's Bunker, Checkpoint Charlie, then on to Museum Island, Kreuzberg, DDR Museum, Topography of Terror and The East side Gallery. Here are some of my favourite photos from the trip - definitely got my creative juices flowing.

Oh and two restaurants I would recommend: Hans Im Glück a burger bar and DUDU a sushi restaurant, pics below!

Few Illustrations to show I'm still alive...

Jesus, I'm a serious slacker aren't I?!

Every year I promise myself I will start drawing again. I don't want to promise another New Year resolution only to ashamedly fail again, so I will chose a nice little book out of the many I have and start something. Not sue exactly what but revisiting my blog is a start. 

Let's do this.
