Ages ago our big brother said how much he liked these prints (which we’ve done a couple of before) so when we found an uncoloured one hiding at the bottom of a pile of other stuff we thought we’d do the decent thing and finish it off for him.
I would usually go for a bit more of a vibrant colour but the Muse took my hand and told me to go with brown. It’s not really a colour i’d normally choose but the Muse is usually right so I thought i’d take her at her word and give it a go. And this is how it turned out. I’m rather pleased with the end result and hope the big man is too. Right, what’s next?

Trying to do these little write-up’s can sometimes be more than a little challenging. Sometimes it’s easy and it practically writes itself but sometimes i’m just sat in front of the screen trying to find some pithy comment to make which will amuse my reader(s). ‘Zap!’ has proved to be one of the tough ones. I’ve been sat here for a while now and this is all i’ve got:
“‘Zap’ is an onomatopoeia and, as onomatopoeia go, ‘zap’ is certainly a good one. Probably not the best but certainly up there.”
Is that really good enough? I’m of the opinion that it isn’t but like i said it’s all i’ve currently got. I could try and make up something funny about the lady in the hat but i’m just not feeling it today. Maybe i should go and do some art instead of typing away…
