haar is back!

When Edinburgh looks like this (the views from the castle if you haven't recognised), creatures like these appear in my sketchbook:

Otherwise just started Easter baking and the smell of cheesecake coming from the oven is so difficult to resist...

I love when it is raining in Edinburgh. Especially on a Monday morning. I get a coffee and plan the week ahead while watching people rushing to work. Most of them is triple unhappy - because they had to wake up early, because it is Monday and because it is raining.

magpie market

Come to the Magpie Market on Sunday the 8th of May! It's in The Hub in the very centre of Edinburgh and there is going to be plenty of beautiful stuff.  I will be selling my prints and toys there too. The entry is free! So come, come, come!

sketchy mouse

Bologna was beautiful, warm and sunny. Plus good wine, delicious pasta, lovely shops with local food and hundreds and thousands of beautiful books for children (I only bought one). Very inspiring all of that! I also had a few very good and very promising meetings at the fair and some very interesting comments. The only bad news is that one of my owls is missing! Our suspicion is that she escaped with a pigeon (pigeon bolognese). She must have got influenced by the very romantic atmosphere of Piazza Maggiore. And now the other owl, Lampart, is very lonely and is looking for a girlfriend.

Oh, and I've never had time to get the Italian espresso I had been dreaming about...
