Illustration Friday -Missing (you)


A fun topic but I got stuck on what to draw...I thought of keys because they always seem to be missing when I need them ..or socks because it seems my washing machine really does eat them up...

but what I miss the most are my grandparents.
They retired and moved to Cyprus 17 years ago and so every Wednesday night I call them up and we chat....they fight over who will get the phone and lately they're more keen to talk to my boys than me haha....they are always on my mind...
so a quick sketch this week
I think I need a new scanner...I dont know what that shadow is all about?


Here is a pic of my grandfather Kosta with my boys
and my sister's girls
taken last year when we were all over there holidaying.
He is partially blind now but still manages quite well...
