This year I've resolved to eat sugar again, but just be sensible about it. Why am I rambling about sugar and resolutions? Because on my 11 hour flight back to LA from London I was sandwiched between two men who were taller and all-around larger than me. They took the armrests and maybe 20% of my seat! I spent the first part of the flight being as passive-aggressively moody as only a Brit can be until it started to dawn on me that I wasn't just having to tolerate these guys squishing me, but that they were having to tolerate the moody redhead in the middle.
So....I softened... and came up with my New Year's Resolution for 2016 - a different kind of self-improvement - tolerance and patience. Or to put it a better way - to be nicer in situations like this! Poor blokes. I felt guilty for my huffing and tutting. Sure, it was annoying that my expensive flight procured me less than a whole seat and no armrests but when is an 11 hour flight ever comfortable? They were after-all doing their best to give me space, and be nice to me - I knew that.
I had a free morning so I sketched and coloured this drawing for fun and to practice using Photoshop (drawing like this is still quite new to me - see others from last year here).
Hope you see the humour in the drawing and see that the bad guy in the image is me - the angry Brit in the middle, sandwiched between two men who actually did have these looks of trepidation on their faces.
In other news, I did my year's end 'round up' in my last post here! Stay tuned for new works soon and thank you so much for those that continue to read my blog and participate on FB and Instagram. I appreciate each and every one of you.
