I have been working on a christmas recipe that will be published in the staff magazine of the company I work for as a day job.
Of course, when it gets published, I'll post it! Here's a little sneek peek.
I am also working on another recipe that will be published in march in the American magazine 'Where Women Cook'. Salli and Nate, who are the founders of the fabulous website www.theydrawandcook.com, have their very own TheyDrawAndCook column in this magazine where they feature 3 women who participated with their recipes on the website.

Here's one of those scenes.
It looked like dad
was trying to deal with a hungry three year old and a grumpy adolescent
who'd rather not join in for the dinner he was preparing for the
family right after coming home from a busy day.
Some character sketches I did for the sketch book project. It's quite possible that crazy grant aunt Vermillion (this was Timothy Hodges suggestion on my last post about the sketchbook!) is getting a small part in the sketchbook :)
I got a new second hand bike, that is so much better than my old one! Given the fact that I travel a lot by bicycle, it was about time! I made a quick sketch of the keys to much comfortable and fast travelling through the city.
