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!

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.
