Fear not, this fur is faux.   Thankfully when illustrating, the case is always so.

In a bid to disappear from the heat into a snowy wonderland, I was about to post one of my Paris carousel illustrations from several years ago and changed my mind.  Sorry if I've just disappointed you.  It's somewhat like saying, "I saw a majestic bunch of flowers at the markets that were so 'You'!  Here's a box of champagne truffles... I hope you like them."  My bad.

Nonetheless, here we are, with a something vastly different from the highly detailed and delicate work embodied in that gilt-edged and pastel-encrusted carousel, tiny enough to fit on a sheet of A4.   You could take this vintage ensemble for a spin on one of those winter-clad horsies and be snug as a bug in a rug.  Oh, all right then.  Go take a peek.  Don't say I never give you anything.  Hang on ... do say I always give you something?  Curse you, double negatives, and pass the hip flask of brandy. And on that note ...

Happy Fashionable Friday to you !


  1. This one's somewhat different than your usual. I like the black & white!

    1. Thanks, Petrea !! I'm liking it, too. :) I've been playing around with a black brush marker and rather enjoying it ... Hugs to you and Wilma!


Merci, grazie, thank you for joining our conversation lounge. Your smile lights up the room. Even more beautifully than our crystal chandelier. x
