I received a hand painted postcard earlier this month from my droll sketching friend Michael Lomas, who has spent most of March in Portugal.  His work reflects his sense of humour - recently at the Museum of Science and Technology he sketched a locomotive, but couldn't resist adding a damsel tied to the tracks.  His style reminds me of Roald Dahl - great fun.

The note on the back of the card was in the form of a press release.

"Canada invades Portugal, seeking compensation for overfishing of Canada's Grand Banks.

Portugal offers suntan lotion for Canadian's lobster leg sunburn."
