sketches from serbia

This Week's strip is a cobble-together from some the sketchbooks I took with me to Grrr!, consisting:
  • Celebration of the absolute gloriousness of Serbian cakes.
  • A confusing conversation in Serbian, German and English about christmas trees, magic mushrooms, Alice in Wonderland, gnomes and reindeer.
  • Me at Heathrow bus station for 50 miserable minutes.
Normal service will be resumed shortly.

You've captured the gorgeousness of the cakes beautifully. (I made a point of returning with sketchbook & camera every day.) The one with "tiramisu" written on it in cocoa was particularly inspirational, I found...

I must see your cakey pictures! ... we should get together next time I'm in London ... I've got all my photos back, now -- the pop-9 ones of the the embroideries came out better than I hoped!
