This illustrates the best bit of the day for me…
It’s my brother and his wife, who got married in some woods in Somerset on Saturday…it was a wonderful day filled with blessings and bunting, petals and pasties, wine and water pistols…and the tallest wedding cake I’ve ever seen!
I drew this little dog with a suitcase shortly after the Referendum here in Britain, still reeling from the idea that we will be leaving the EU.
In the last few weeks I’ve been hearing so many shocking stories of racist abuse being hurled at people on the street and in public places.
I thought of my Italian grandmother arriving in England as a teenager before the Second World War, and wondered what prejudices she faced.
Here in Stroud I know people from Hungary, Italy, USA, Poland, Austria, Portugal, Turkey, Wales, Scotland, the Philippines, Japan, Denmark, Sweden, Australia and Germany.
I wouldn’t have it any other way.
