Illustration Friday - "Diary"

This week's Illustration Friday topic of "Diary" was irresistible, especially as I find myself constantly juggling the things I want to do, with things I have to do, and actually have time to do! It also gave me a perfect topic to play with and ease myself back into drawing as a habit, after a couple of weeks without the space to dream and draw.

I loved the idea of creating an illustration that looked as if it could have been crudely block printed, in the style of early printing because there is a time-less quality about the way people use and have used diaries over the centuries.

I like the enveloping feel of your drawings, diaries do make a space like that for some of us
