I’ve caught a cold, probably from those germy tango people, so I made a hot toddy: cognac, honey, lemon juice, hot water, a cinnamon stick, and three cloves.
Because I felt like a wet rag today, I went outside only to get chicken soup and more tissues. Sitting in the cold to draw did not seem like a good idea. This, therefore, is the first day of DrawMo! 2007 that I drew inside my apartment. So I tried to make it up to the world by making the process really, really tedious, using the very thin pens that I don’t have in brown. It’s hard to draw cognac, gold leaf, and wood without a brown pen.
It took me so long to draw this that by the time I was done and could pick up the glass, my drink was cold. I reheated it (in a different glass—can’t microwave gold leaf) in the microwave.
