“sometimes we sit for hours staring at a sea shell. other times he’ll hold me by the neck in front of the pyramids. but there’s nothing we like more than nearly kissing each other near some horses. i always try to look hot in front of him so he doesn’t leave me.”

thanks to my internet friend rebecca jesson for sharing this on facebook (sometimes facebook is good for something) - also check out james face by oli, another highlight of my day.

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.
