Tarte Aux Figues

Today we have more food as I simply couldn’t resist trying this little fig tart. I can report that it was indeed delicious, and also that even with its small size, I was good and split it with Philippe. This would be more impressive if we hadn’t also purchased a strawberry tart which we split later in…

Le Bon Saucisson

Today ended up quite busy, so I made a fast and loose doodlewash of one of my favorite treats when visiting Paris – saucisson sec. Last night we went with our friend to one of my favorite restaurants, Le 14 Juillet, and had an amazing meal that started with this wonderful treat. I’m determined to sketch something…

When you were traveling back then, you never quite…

Taking Road Trips

Tonight, I’m running super short on time, but made a quick doodlewash of an old Volkswagan camper van as my recreational vehicle for today’s prompt. I’ve never actually owned one of these or even ridden in one, but find them really cool. In fact, the only kind of recreational vehicle I’ve ever experienced in person was the…
