I drew this picture when I was 19, whilst I was searching for a flat in Seville.
A lovely Spanish Meryl Streep and her terrifying boxer dog, Bowie, let me stay in their super elegant apartment while I looked. There were marble floors, cut glass whiskey decanters and raunchy nudes all over the walls - it was top fancy! Skipping barefoot to the gleaming bathroom in polka dot pyjama shorts and a t shirt bearing an enormous image of Dr Dre's head, I felt, frankly, like a massive imposter. And also a bit of a tramp.
Anyway, I am one of these (lucky, lucky) people who gets singed and sunburnt just by looking at a decent weather report on the telly, so I did a little bit of sight seeing, punctuated with a lot of scribbling in my diary, safe in the shade. Anyway, this is what I drew:
I had no idea about the law of attraction when I drew this, but at the end of the same summer, an above average looking chap I had been nursing a colossal crush on, told me I was cute and gave me the CHEEKIEST of snogs before I moved back to Spain again for the year. It was only when leafing through my old diary that I spotted this and saw how I had created my own reality without even knowing it!
ANYWAY, to sum up, I've done a few more. And here they are :) The chap in these ones seems to have had a shave right in the middle of the action, but I think it's a strong look. Apols for my shoddy drawing style, I am trying to tell myself it's naive and endearing or something.. or (as my summer snog once suggested) CUTE! :/:/ not sure if i've succeeded! But, embarrassing scribbles aside, I hope these drawings let the universe know what I'm asking for, and I hope they inspire someone else to reach for their felt tip pens :)
peace & lovecats
