pinkie 'n rabbit

I haven't done a morning sketch for a few days and it makes me feel not quite right. So I only gave myself five minutes for this one, to draw a shape and turn it into something.
Today I'm painting end papers for a picture book and listening to Billie Holiday radio on Last FM. A little thing, but it made me smile when Anita O'Day sang 'the way you sip your tea...' in the song They Can't Take That Away From Me, just as I was taking a swig of mine.

You have excellent taste.

Why, thank you, kind sir! I've often heard people say things to the contrary, but we won't go there... ;-)

::wandering in from the wilds of the internet::

I could be wrong since i haven't listened to S'Wonderful in a while, but I think the song you were listening to might have actually been They Can't Take That Away From Me. Just thought I'd mention it, in case I'm right and you want to find the song again to synchronize you tea-sipping with the lyrics.

The rabbit looks a little apprehensive. I hope they eventually bond over mutual pinkness.

That's the one, thanks!

It's not hard to catch me tea sipping, I think it might happen again. :-)

I think Stormwyvern's right, you know!

That's a lovely pink.

Okay, I will go change it. ;-) And thanks!

Yey a morning sketch! My day always seems off unless I find a new morning sketch of yours up here.

Aw, bless you. How's it going a-way up north?

good! I have to finish the wanted poster tonight and the cover for the sea 3 so I can go to my printers tomorrow lunch time.... and of course looking forward to the end of the month

Ooo, I can't wait to see those! Yes, I'm looking forward to the Thing, too, although I haven't had a single moment to put together anything. Argh. I'll have to do something super-quick.

I love taking a shape and making it into something. I always used to play a game during boring classes -- do a quick scribble with yr. eyes closed on a piece of paper, then open your eyes and try making it into an animal.

Oops, that was me.

Judging from what I know about Anita O'Day's private habits, maybe the line should be "The way you puff your tea."
Is it Ella who sings, in her version of that song, "The way you sing off KEY, key, key"? THAT always cracks me up.

I know Sarah Vaughan (my favourite) did that - but maybe she took it from Ella.

This reminds me a bit of Rachel Ortas. It's that shade of pink, and the teeth.
