MONDAY : No photo today, had a boring day clearing out my wardrobe while B was in Edinburgh.
TUESDAY : The offending tooth is removed following last week's course of antibiotics. <<<RELIEF!!>>> That's a stock photo - but the exact tooth I had removed.
WEDNESDAY : I did a swift clear-up of wet, dead leaves iris leaves and dead stalks in the front garden
THURSDAY : My work space is really getting going now, I knew it wouldn't stay tidy for long. It should improve once our own furniture arrives in the New Year (it should, but probably won't)
B pressure-hosed thick moss off the stonework in the back garden, revealing lovely old stones
FRIDAY : Off to Edinburgh to deliver work to the Open Eye Gallery; I have loved the wooden cutout friezes in Dunfermline Town railway station since early childhood
The carousel in the Christmas Market in Edinburgh is set up and being decorated in readiness for opening - you know Christmas is here once it starts!
Four drawings delivered to the gallery for their On a Small Scale exhibition, running until 23 December
SATURDAY : Dunfermline Town railway station again: aliens wondering where to buy tickets
SUNDAY : My Sunday job today. Back to reality after drawings and gallery visits: the mundane housework still has to be done, as well as everything else.
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!
