Trying out some new Conté a Paris sticks today and I liked the speed they gave me, but as you can see around the lower lip and the right eye - I've a long ways to go (partly from poor drawing and partly from getting used to the new sticks.)
Thanks to Darran Hughes for pointing out a website for children's hospitals of the past.  The pictures and the stories are riveting.  http://www.hharp.org/
This little girl was Minnie Ashman, a patient from June to October 1873.

When I first saw the reference photo I thought, there's  a face loaded with potential for a funny title!  For the life of me, I can't think of one though.
Thanks to Darran Hughes for finding this toothless gent!

+assaad chehade It's hard not to turn things into caricatures sometimes.
Thanks for your very kind comment!

My mother used to say this to us.  Her sister taught it to her in Latin, but the Latin has long since been forgotten.  It's still pretty cute in English :)

+Zac Lowing that's a great link - that's really what nostalgia should be about, preserving the good things to make us better people in the here and now.  I think there's something about having strong, decent roots that helps to keep us on the straight and narrow.

Maybe tomorrow I might add a watercolor wash, but just in case that ruins it I thought I'd better scan it now while it's just an ink drawing.

Thank you very much for appreciating my work! I am doing what you advised me to do - keep drawing! I love plants so I'm starting there. My inking still needs a little work, though :D

Rescue dogs were used in London to locate victims trapped in the rubble.  The reference photo showed one of these furry heros that I couldn't resist.  (the drawing wasn't that hot, but I wanted my sketchbook album to be complete one way or another.  Drawn when I was "on vacation" in Feb)

Will give it a listen, they had the radio dramatisation of The Grapes of Wrath a few weeks ago, very entertaining.

Do any of you know Latin?  Is this correct?  I need it for a piece I'm working on.  (my mother used to say this to us when we were kids)

"Modicum te amo, te amo magnus, ut te amo paulo sus."
is that right for
"I love you little.  I love you big.  I love you like a little pig."

+Bill Collins my goodness, I didn't mean for you to go to that much effort over my question!  Thank you very much though!

I am thinking that amamus might rhyme with porculus.  She said the "us" sounded familiar.  

We'll never know what it was because the aunt (her sister) that taught her the little Latin rhyme has since passed away.  

If nothing else, it has exercised my mind for a couple of days and hers as well!

Thanks so much for your help and the link!

What bothered me so much about the first one was the square shape around the "T".  It seemed out of place and there was too much frufru that didn't really add to the composition.  I tried simplifying and adding a rat because you really can't be properly grateful until you feel like a rat ;)  (just kidding)

Oh, I love the rat, what a glorious way to enhance the lettering, and its pose is just adorable! This calligraphy thing definitely suits you, wonderful embellishment.
