I made this page when I realised an appalling truth - having made one of those "young man" speeches to a hapless youth in a shop. That's right, the look on his face said it all, I AM officially an "Old Bat".
Never mind, it was probably inevitable, and as you know all of life is grist to my journalling mill, so I set to making a page about this painful realisation.
The background is Neocolour II crayons by Caran D'Ache, and I should add that since I made this page I've discovered that they work even better over gesso. The colours seem to become even more intense, though sometimes a soft look is what you're after.
The face is a favourite stamp of mine, by Daniel Torrente for Stampotique. I often use it to represent myself, having hair broadly similar to this depiction. Its the slightly sick expression I love though, one which unfortunately crosses my face regularly.
And then I just let rip with the doodling and drawing bats. Sorry this is a short post - I have sciatica at the moment and sitting down for any length of time isn't working for me ......
