seven years in california

“There’s not much glamour ’bout the English weather…”

Today is seven years since we moved to California! Seven years ago I handed in my MA dissertation, had some pretty massive parties with friends and family and stepped into the unknown. We moved to Davis a month or so later, and have lived here ever since (and while I still can’t speak American, hardly anyone asks if I’m British any more). So to honour that I am posting seven random Davis drawings from each of those years. Actually no, I’ll post eight, to include the first sketch made here in 2005 (year zero). And also a big thank you to everyone who has followed me on this sketchblog, I appreciate all of your visits and kind comments. Cheers!
