Edinburgh

Just after new year my friend Lisa and I took a jaunt to Edinburgh, it was my birthday and it was so nice to do something special. I studied my Illustration degree in Edinburgh but I haven’t been back for years. I was excited to see old haunts and new changes.

When we arrived Edinburgh was just as I remembered; low, bright winter sun and buildings that make you look up!

When I lived in Edinburgh I was pretty sketchbook obsessive and my favourite place to draw was the National Museum of Scotland. So this was our first stop ..

And guess what? I still enjoyed drawing there.

I think I might still be a sketchbook obsessive.

What places make you smile?
