The little one and I went to Tiger in Cambridge a few weeks ago to get whatever struck our fancy. We ended up buying all sorts of colourful things. She got herself a big bag of straws, a set of highlighters, a notebook and a hand fan. I got myself a roll of their fruit-themed parcel tape, a set of table napkins and a plain kraft notebook. At £2, the notebook was definitely a steal.
I decided to personalise it yesterday. I just used some of my Derwent and Prismacolor pencils to make this Alice in Wonderland-inspired picture. The little one said that she looks a bit ill because of her eyes. Ha. I'm definitely into drawing droopy-eyed people these days.
Having said that, she does look a little bit too ill. I might just lighten the area under her eyes a bit.
This was a lot of fun to do and I'm thinking of getting a few more kraft notebooks to customise. Any suggestions on which literary character I should do next?
Edited: I've redone parts of her face to make her look a little less, er, consumptive. The little thinks she still looks ill though. There's no pleasing some people.
