speaking of messes


Last time I drew a sink full of dirty dishes I was thinking about how it would be to live like a celebrity...Britney Spears in particular...and never have to do the dishes. Today, however, I am relieved to be me and not Britney! I'll take doing the dishes any day over the chaos that surrounds her. In fact, I consider myself lucky!

I love the green ink. Whether or not it is a Photoshop trick...it is beautiful...

I'm glad you're not Britney, but the super talened Suzanne instead! I think it's better to have the ability to make a sink full of dirty dishes look glamorous than to have the here-today-gone-tomorow "glamor" that many celebs have.

I think everyone has a messy sink area - at least once a week!! Except I don't think many people have the talent to make it look as good as you do!!!
The green ink is really cool!

Thanks for commenting on my 100th post ;)

What a wonderful idea to make the washing up into a work of art for posterity! It's a lovely drawing and I like the green ink you've used!

The art of the mess! I like this a lot!

We are definitely all happy you are you and not Britney. Britney should wish she was you.

Nice drawing. Not brave enough to draw my dirty dishes! I like the green ink too.

This is the kind of sketch i am dying to do lately. I've been staring at the kitchen counter thinking i should draw it -- and there you are, with a brilliant little sketch.

This is fantastic, your loose sketches are absolutely wonderful. Love the colour as well.

Such a gorgeous sketch. Exactly the kind of sketch I wish i could do - but I'd end up cross hatching it to death!

Incidentally, i saw your new post on your college blog. Wow. The internet never fails to astound me. It's hard to believe that there will be a class in North Carolina discussing cross-hatching and comparing both France's and my style. That completely freaks me out and makes me feel very proud too. Thank you.

Wonderful sketch and I enjoyed your post about celebrity and dishes. I actually really like doing dishes (when I'm in the mood) but the celebrity perk I fantasize about is having a cook!
