So, my blog post today is dedicated to a precious girl , called Olive , aged 10 . I hope you get to see this Olive .
I’ll explain why ….
Olive, your dad visited our home to do a pest inspection this morning , which was really cool , because our house needed a pest inspection because the teeny tiny little ants that keep trooping into in our bathroom are driving me INSANE . I hate them , the little sods.( apologies to all any ant lovers out there)
And Olive, we also don’t really want our humble abode to be eaten by another type of ant – termites .And your lovely pest inspector dude dad sprayed our ever growing termites nest in the front yard so they won’t eat up our house ( more little sods ) which is nice.
But, as usual, I digress…
The reason this pest inspection was extra specially cool though Olive, was actually because I ended up having a nice chat with your pest inspector dude dad about martial arts, the tough lifestyle of a chef, ( his former occupation) , difficult rude customers , being a parent, and , you know ,other boring stuff that grown ups talk about..
And THEN we talked about REALLY awesome stuff like ” life” and ” why there are so many annoying hypocritical Christians in the world ” and “unicorns ”
And , as well as enjoying the chat , your Dad made me reflect , that I am really super blessed to be doing all this illustration work for kids .
I am blessed , Olive, that I have some big publishers now wanting to put my messy scratchy artwork in their files for future children’s books.
That’s UBER exciting
Even though that’s great – the reason I am REALLY blessed is because I can draw crazy pictures which will be going in books , that will bring happiness to children , just like you Olive- precious daughter of the pest inspector dude , who gave up his chefs job which involved long shifts that kept him from his little girl (you) and that had left him too tired to interact with her (you) when he wasn’t working so he left that job, so he could be with you a whole lot more.
He loves you so much . That was obvious .
So Olive, I hope you get to read this post.
You are on my heart , because I have a 10 year old daughter too and her dad and I love her just as much as your dad does .
Which is why I drew Cupcake Marshmallow Sunshine the Unicorn for my girl …and for kids just like you .
I draw for you guys
I hope you enjoy your own limited edition autographed print of Cupcake the Unicorn that I sent home with your Dad today after he killed the sodding ants 🐜
Much love to you Olive
all my beautiful readers,
