ink & watercolour illustration, 6" x 6.5" [15 x 16.5cm]
I love it when people roll out the Welcome Mat by tattooing it onto their footpaths. There's no doubting the commitment level.
When I was over visiting Alexa the other day, her photo of a "Welcome to Booklyn" sign embedded into the concrete reminded me of this Brisbane illustration I did years ago, at the Thornton St ferry stop at Kangaroo Point. It's only a few kilometres or so from ye olde Pineapple Hotel that you might recall from a previous visit. I haven't been there in years, so I don't know how this sign is weathering the foot, boot and thong traffic ~ but I do hope it's still there in all its quaint glory!
