dog and bell

Why is it, that the last two times I've taken Will Kirkby (chamonkee) to a nice pub, we've met head-on with full retro-kitsch Englishness? This time it was a group of very randy Morris dancers, but at least the ale was good. I did some drawing with Will and Lou (naniiebim) and Will let me mess around with his nice expensive magic marker until I ran it out of ink.

Hey, look at the fab drawing David O'Connell (tozocomic) made of yesterday's life drawing session! (He is thinking hard about the cookies Viviane baked.) You can see more work on his new website.

Those marker drawings are fab! Just how expensive are those markers? (And are they refillable?)

Re: Fab
Hi, Dave! It was a grey Tria pen by Letraset; basically, a fat marker with a slanted flat tip.

Hahaha, I love Morris Dancers. I rarely see any (we don't have them in France), but there's something to be said about people who are not ashamed to go out and dance ridiculous dances with little bells strapped to their ankles.

It's so uncool it becomes cool.

These costumes were pretty amazing! But they were getting pretty lechy by this point. Except for the youngest guy and the woman, they decided they needed an exchange for their photo and wouldn't let me go til they'd queued up and I'd given them each a kiss. (They settled for cheek air kissing, thankfully.) Ew.

Do I spy a Scott C influence at work? Hurrah for Will and his lion t-shirt!

Yeah, I recognised Will's lion shirt too!

Hadn't consciously been referencing Scott C, but I'm sure he's in there somewhere! Yes, Will wasn't wearing that shirt this time, but I can't ever forget it.

Que vida Sarah, hanging out with Morris dancers! We saw some fierce Morris dancing a couple weeks back at Folklife, the stuff that makes me think it's a British martial arts discipline. The stuff with sticks.

Ha ha... I think it'd call it more 'fey' than 'fierce', but you never know, there might be some vicious ones out there.

I have to say I've never seen someone addicted to markers so quickly...
Also sis I leave my umbrella at yours?

Oo, I'm looking around and I don't see anything long and umbrella-shaped... it's not an easy umbrella to miss, either. :-(
