aunty jeremy

un-expectingMy pretty little sister Ellē is expecting a child. In fact, she has been for a while, but I've been superstitiously silent until after the first scan, as you are supposed to be. Baby is a gymnast and wriggled enough that it remains gender neutral for the moment... With Fortean aptness I caught one of the viruses that drift round our sick offices and spent the week before she finally cracked and told me staggering around nauseous and dizzy ... which inspired this week's strip. She's having a grim time of it but she is the girl with the delicate stomach (unlike mine, which will happily consume pretty much anything) and I would expect no less of her.

I'm seeing her on Sunday, we're going to see Eyes, Lies and Illusions at the Hayward, so I can mock her delicate condition and tell her she's showing even though she won't be.


Finally got round to seeing if I could draw on those jigsaw blanks geroge gave me. Looks like I can.

Jeremy! There's an "l" missing from the end of the link to the strip! THE PEOPLE NEED L, JEREMY!!!

I always click on the picture, hadn't even noticed!

i love
the last panel particularly.

That jigsaw has beautiful colours!

ah my b'loved
caran d'ache.

The only trouble is, that they are water soluble. So the jigsaw will smear under pressure of fingers. Hmmm, maybe some sort of spray varnish ...

I'd be really interested to hear what you think of the exhibition at the Hayward. I've been meaning to check it out for weeks, so do let us know if it's worth a look.

Moi Aussi...
Apart from financial considerations, I find the thought of attending this very interesting-sounding exhibit rather scary. Go figure-

Congratulations! Sometimes I think I'd rather be an aunt than a mom. Unfortunately, my sister seems to feel the same way.

Grr. I'm off to write, as the Chain-o'-Sickness in my house has finally subsided, allowing me time to do this.

And your art always makes my heart hurt so much and I fear that if I don't feed it some of my own writing, it will call me out on being a poseur...
