Year Five: The Sketches

As has become an annual tradition, I have compiled the sketches which featured during my fifth year of blogging (which, incidentally, almost coincides with the tax year.)  It always reminds me that I haven't done as many as I planned.  But also slightly more than I remember doing.  Here they are - clicking on the sketch should take you to the relevant post!

  3. I have a lot of favorites among these this year, but I have to say "holding out for a hardback" makes me laugh every time I see it. :) Thanks for the year-in-review. :)

  4. I love these! "If Book Titles Were Helpful" is wonderful but my favourite has to be "Playing Scrabble in Welsh".

  6. Your sketches are always so refreshing, Simon. Seeing them on your posts reminds me of the illustrations scattered about the Ms Pettigrew book.

Thanks so much for taking the time to comment - my favourite part of blogging is reading your comments!

Annoyingly, Blogger often messes up with comments... try refreshing, or commenting Anonymously (add your name in, though!) or using Firefox/Chrome instead of Internet Explorer. (Ctrl+c your comment first!)

Failing everything, email me: simondavidthomas[at]yahoo.co.uk - or just email me anyway :)

Thanks!
