Great sketch and a lovely way to do a self portrait. On a photograph a pic of your feet was just a way to use up film (or a mistake)... here it's a window onto the artist!

Just read back in your blog (sorry, missed it) and saw your big news... a UK move is it...?! Congratulations on taking the big step and if you're really UK bound and I can be of assistance, happy to help! As far as city recommendations go... In truth I wouldn't really recommend where I am (Woking, a town in the county of Surrey, 30 mins train from central London... so plenty of work opportunities though). I kind of fell into living here out of work necessity, but I originally come from the north of England where people tend to be friendlier on the whole (in the right areas that is... less job opportunities on the whole though) and as far as the south goes I have a mate in Bristol and I've always found that city to be accessible with a nice pace. Not an in depth UK review I know but feel free to ask any questions and I'll try to provide insightful answers :)

Thanks Matt, I appreciate that. I think we're going to start off in the north, Edinburgh to be exact, and work our way down. At first we were thinking near London, but our budget will go further if we live elsewhere. Bristol, you say... I'll keep that in mind.

And if we end up in Woking I'll let you know:)
