J’arrive!

Here’s some exciting news for the world: I’ve not only moved house, but I’ve just moved country. I’m now living in Lyon, France, along with my partner, the illustrator Cat O’Neil. Everything is incredibly idyllic here, and my diet will now consist of nothing but cheese and wine, and my lifestyle will consist of nothing but lounging around in cafes:

In the mean time, here are a few sketches from my first week in the city:

  1. Great sketches as always. I especially love the one looking down the stairs. I hope your move went smoothly and you’ve settled well. I moved from Scotland to America 2.5 years and some days I feel like I’m still a new arrival who knows nothing.

  2. These are great! I love the man doing tai chi! Emily
