Many years ago, sitting in a café, I sketched this as quick and as discreetly as possibly. Whilst having a hot Mocha with a gorgeous, soft, moist slice of crumbly Lemon and Poppy seed cake at a café next door in Norwich where I often went to when I needed to get away from my drawing board (in hindsight, the two reasons I went there was to hide and have some poppy-seed cake with their excellent Mocha! which somehow tasted better from their paper cups! weird… I know!). Every other day, a lovely friendly gentleman would drive up, park it across from St.Andrews and come in to read the paper and have a coffee and we almost always sat next to each other on the same spot over the 3 or so years I spent in Norwich. This piece was a product of keeping a sketchbook (ah… those were the days eh? Those little pleasures you could afford to have… now I struggle to keep a pen/paper in my hand or even find the time for it). But I am hopeful  that one day, I will return to my sketch-a-day habit. Even if it is on an ipad… ;-p

Anyway, years later, here I am. This was my first ever print even before Henry, The Owl. I badly wanted to cut a print and so went through my old sketch books and found this and it brought back all the memories and love I have for a Morris Minor. I later found out at the DeBeauvoir Xmas fair that it was actually a Morris Traveller and not just Morris Minor. Either way, I have fallen in love with these super cute, sturdy little buggers. The traveller even had a back made of wooden ‘slats’. Another reason why it ticked my box- Wood! Now, if only I could get my hands on one… * Sigh!*
