If you happen to see one that you would like to keep, I would love to do a swap with you (on behalf of the OCRF)… My suggestion is a donation of $10 but it is up to you to nominate the amount you are able to give.
You may reserve the sketch of your choice by leaving a comment attached to the relevant post, or by emailing me (firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com), or by visiting Milly Sleeping. The drawings are numbered here for identification purposes but the number doesn't actually appear on the drawing. A red 'R.' that appears next to any of the numbers will mean that the sketch is currently reserved.

You may either entrust your donation to me, or you can donate online (via the Frocktober page), or I can send you details so that you can do an online transfer or send a cheque/money order. If you are donating independently, pleasepleaseplease quote my registration number – 661060.
Donations of more than $2 are tax deductible and you will receive a receipt directly from the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation. Please understand that I will need to view all receipts before passing on the sketches and can make no exception to this condition. If possible, I would like to keep the drawings as a group until the end of Frocktober.

“It's not an auction” … and I say this, A/ because it is a very funny line from Reality Bites and, B/ because I will not be accepting ‘higher bids’ for any of the sketches – once one has been reserved, I will consider it reserved until at least October 31 (… you are very welcome to email me and leave your details in case the first sponsor doesn’t follow through).

I won’t be able to produce one per day but I will be producing one for every day (31 total). Each of the sketches is a date-stamped original - grey-lead and watercolour, on A5 watercolour card.

If I’ve left anything out or you have a question, please feel free to send me a note or leave a gentle comment below. Too many words today - but in my next post I'll tell you the names and designers of dresses one through seven.

My good friend M. is reading The Artist's Way. She's got me doing morning pages and talking about our ideal (or perhaps fantasy) creative lives. She suggests that one day I will pack up suddenly and go to Paris, to write a long thesis on the colour red. It was a lovely throwaway line... but it's caused me some mental turmoil.
Why Paris and red?
Why not New York and yellow, or Alexandria and blue?

I can't remember where exactly I photographed these funny mosaics. On the walls of a charming toilet block, in a Victorian coastal town. Mosaics have been stigmatised, I think, (quite possibly because of this kind of application) but I quite like them - big, clumsy ones and also fine, dainty ones made from broken teacups and that kind of thing.
