A warmup doodle for today. Since I am in Scotland and there is all manner of hammering, screwing, fixing and upgrading going on all around me, this character manifested in my mind. In the land of the Will ‘O Wisp, there is magic all around – but none so dense and forceful as this fine specimen of Scottish handymanhood.
Running and maintaining a B&B is no laughing matter. Ken and Gill who are my hosts and the proprietors of Eriskay B&B and Glaming in Aviemore seldom seem to rest. Even though they are arguably the most unique and the best accommodation to find in Aviemore they have never allowed themselves to rest on their laurels either.
During quieter moments they constantly, paint, retile, upgrade and renew every little detail in the home and out in their outstanding ‘glamping’ pods. I am wearied by simply watching them. The alarming thing is this weekend the first guests of 2020 start arriving and I am reassured then the work REALLY starts!
I think I’ll stick to drawing ugly brutish Scots instead.
