once upon a time (that’s how this feels) we took a train trip from prague to füssen then hopped on a bus to hohenschwangau and made our way up the hill to the neuschwanstein castle. fun!

another day

everyday she takes a morning bath, she wets her hair, wraps a towel around her as she’s heading for the bedroom chair – it’s just another day.

i used to sit in the living room on my mom’s brown curdoruy couches (!) listening to another day over & over. for some reason i always imagined he had written it for linda mccartney (or at least, she played the protagonist in the mini-music video of my mind, her towel was pink).  i associate it with the eighties (because i played it from this album) – but turns out it was written in 1970 & was paul mccartney’s first solo single. linda does sing backing vocals, naturally.

rocking vans

Once upon a time — or more accurately, back in the 1970s — the van reigned supreme.  Riding in right on the heels of the fading muscle car era, the custom van became the ultimate self-expression vehicle– tricked-out and personalized to show all the world just how your bad self rolled. [...]

the best thing about looking at old photos of your parents is realising that most everyone is the same when they’re young (beer! braai! party hats! dancing! fun!). [check out that speedo in the background]

daily diaries

i really look forward to these little illustrations by gemma correll, and i always lament that i don’t do something similar – especially because life can be mundane but there’s always something amusing to be found in the little things (eg: smoked mussels that looks like tiny vaginas). i’ve always been hopeless at keeping a diary, so well done gemma (and keep them coming). oh and she also participates in the what i wore today flickr movement, see her outfits here.

proposal

this has to be the most original & amazing proposal i have ever seen!

http://i48.tinypic.com/21et1uh.jpg

It was just over a year ago, eating a bowl of Moules et Frits, on holiday in Paris with my girlfriend Liz, that I realised I could quite easily spend the rest of my life with her. I just needed the right way of asking the question, and a bit of time to work it all out. One definite intention was proposing through illustration. I’d like to think of it as two of my favourite things in life in coming together for the one goal.
