Illustration: In the Rain

My father wanted company when he went for an appointment, which meant I had an hour to kill in a waiting room. So I sketched myself (for a given value of myself, all I had was a lipstick mirror) in the rain. It was very wet that day, and I'd already had to change my clothes once, due to being caught out without an umbrella. 

The umbrella is a bit wonky. They've never been my strong suit, and I was drawing and inking on my lap, in a narrow Moleskine watercolour sketchbook. 

So the inked version sat in my sketchbook for a few days, and I just sloshed some paint on it in a sketchy sort of way (it is in a sketchbook, after all). Marvel at my utter inability to be in fashion. =P That is, by the way, my favourite hat. ^.^
