The stick was my admitting that I needed to get drawing again – once I’d said it publicly I felt compelled to get on with it, knowing I would feel guilty if I didn’t. The carrot is, well, the carrot. I’ve started to draw again and it feels good. Or maybe the carrot is the number of new coloured pencils I felt were necessary to treat myself to. Either way.
There’s a quote attributed to Jim Davis, but I’m not sure if it came directly from his mouth or via that of his creation, Garfield: ‘vegetables are a must on a diet. I suggest carrot cake, zucchini bread, and pumpkin pie’. I like it.

Nice drawing Amanda. I had no idea you were so talented!
Thank you Alison, that’s a really nice thing to say! Not sure how good my drawing is but I do know I love doing it, even if I have to drag myself kicking and screaming to the table and sit myself down and not allow myself to leave until I have something on the page!
Keep drawing! Helen
I will! Thanks Helen!
