Bit Of A Change...

Spent the weekend in Glasgow with my belovèd, the Glaswegian Dr.F and her folks; possibly the first full weekend I've had off since my trip to Spain in August. Makes me late starting the next episode of Stickleback, of course, but what th' heck...
I spent most of an afternoon wandering about Glasgow city centre in a slight daze, catching up with odd bits of shopping; I finally managed to buy a watch (my old one died the day we got here and I've not had time to replace it) and I also visited the excellent Miller's Art Shop, one of the few places I know that still sell Neocolor crayons individually. Neocolor is very opaque, so sometimes when I do sketches at signings and conventions, I draw on coloured paper and use it to add highlights. Miller's were out of the nice coloured paper pads they had last time (2005) though.


There was evidently a big match on, as the streets were full of big burly blokes in kilts wearing flags for capes and with Crosses of St.Andrew painted on their faces. Makes a change...

I probably walked right past you Matt. I was in Miller's on Saturday with my daughter Molly buying sketchbooks and pens.
The Scarlet Traces cover (on yer' blog entry after this one)looks fantastic - reminds me of those 50's sci-fi/horror mags - excellent!

Small world! If you saw a guy in a leather jacket with an arm full of black card in search of Tipp-Ex... that was me.
