The great clear-out prior to the final house move continued this week with the shed. At one time we used it as a pottery, and the clutter was incredible. This old touristy biscuit-tin printed with scenes of the Cotswolds turned up; I was fascinated by its innocence and the faded, scratched surfaces which seemed to add mysterious symbols to buildings and describe jagged lightning strikes of rust!
Thanks for visiting, see you next week
THE WEEKLY: BINKY McKEE AND ME
Welcome to my blog where I share my work as an illustrator as well as occasional events from the week.
I illustrate under the pen-name of Binky McKee, McKee being my mother's maiden name. Binky was the name of every single cat my great-grandmother owned - about 40 of them during her life! It seemed natural to devote my more nurturing, colourful, story-telling work to the female side of the family, whilst practicing my art work under my paternal name.
Currently I am working on illustrating a children's book, and of course I can't resist an Instagram challenge such as Folktale Week or Inktober!
I hope you enjoy the work!
