We interrupt this Thanksgiving Week broadcast to bring you something altogether more delicious—these intricate ink drawings by London artist Rory Dobner. The above photo is from the Dobner’s website, showing his work in situ at Liberty of London. Each drawing is original and mounted in a vintage frame. I commissioned one of these chimerical and totally charming drawings as a “surprise” for Mr. Foodinista’s upcoming birthday, but the real surprise turned out to be explaining an overseas wire transfer, however modest it might have been. So the cat is out of the proverbial bag. In the meantime, I learned that Dobner will be visiting LA next year for the opening of the new Agent Provacateur boutique in Beverly Hills, which will feature his art. But not before our very own “Time for a Tea Party” drawing goes up on our walls!
I am hoping that it will be just thing above our bed, in close proximity to our vintage Liberty curtains that I scored years ago on eBay for a song.
But speaking of birds, a leftover turkey-and-stuffing sandwich is calling. Happy Thanksgiving Weekend!
