Suspicious Characters – the portrait party exchange continues

I missed the movies last night, so went home and went for a walk/run which was wonderful, and the reason I am wearing a singlet and have my hair all over the place in the picture below.

This is my contribution to Remi’s moleskine for the first portrait party exchange ( This is part of the international moleskine exchange (

Portrait party: Remi's moleskine

It is sepia ink executed with a dip pen and crow quill nib, which I love, although I don’t usually carry them around the country with me. I kept breaking old nibs when cleaning them or drying them on my skirt, so bought new nibs and a holder on Thursday and flew to Canberra. They do, however, make impressive props when I demonstrate how many pens I carry in my handbag.

Here is the sign-in page to date with my contribution:

  1. Something about this portrait of you reminds me of Margaret ‘Hot Lips’ Hoolihan from MASH. Maybe it’s the hair. Or the facial expression. Maybe it’s the mouth… I like the style of the pic a lot!

  2. I love your portraits, this group scares me a little, I shouldn’t worry about it, and do my interpretation of the person, I love the simplicity of these two. Hot Lips indeed!

  3. Don’t worry – I worry too much, but I figured if something went wrong I could just do an impressionistic collage over the top :)
