Canberra sketches

The weekend before Easter I flew to Canberra to visit my older sister and her family (and go to the Masterpieces of Paris Exhibition – I am now a fan of Les Nabis).

The page on the left is still in Brisbane – I have taken to drawing in Anzac Square Arcade in the mornings before work. On the right is the flight to Canberra – one of the flight attendants had friends in the seats across the aisle.

On the left is my older nephew, Ben, at basketball, and some drawings by him. On the right is my sister’s lounge room.

On the left is Ben – we sat out in the big basket/sunchair beside the pool and played drawing games a la Mr Squiggle. Below is my younger nephew, Sam, agonising over his homework. That is his Droring on the right – it is a murderous space crab capable of shooting lightening bolts from its claws.

On the left is my sister’s drawing of her kitchen counter. On the right, the boys are doing homework underneath gallery patrons admiring a Gauguin.

More homework on the left, and my congregation playing touch-footy/Calvinball. On the right, we return to Anzac Square Arcade (and the reason I have chosen it – people watching plus free doughnuts with coffee!).
