Since I got back from Australia my health has been really really poor. The 18hr flight fucked up with the varicose veins on my calf and I even spent the night in hospital, it was that bad! Its been 2 weeks since and I'm still in pain and limping around the apartment, splashing my veins with cold water 4 times a day and taking lots of medication for the pain. Argh this heat aint helping either. Anyway apart from my grumblings its given me time to sit down and draw. The second drawing with the cactus and sea life like drawings is something from my childhood. The reason I went home last month was because I had a death in the family, so that drawing was based on my childhood spent at the sea and the massive cactus plants I used to play in at my nona's house (it was a massive plantation of cactus that me and my cousins would sneak in past to get to the neighbours backyard or we would just play in there). I'm going to get around to having the cactus pattern printed onto fabric, then I'll decide what to do with it later. I actually tested out what the pattern would look like on my empty and other stories boxes.
OK I'm off to try enjoy the summer weather. I'm loving Paris being empty this time of the year! The supermarkets are empty and there are less people around. Thats because the Parisians are all on summer holidays woo. I'll be joining them soon too can't wait! ok ok i'm off to go eat and rest my little leg.
