My boyfriend (often referred to as Mr. NES) came up with a brilliant idea for my N’East Illustrated series – illustrating old New England sayings! Yup, he’s a smart guy, that’s why I keep him around. After sharing the idea with friends and family I had a list of 50 or so sayings to illustrate and the list keeps growing. Today, the series launches with “holy mackerel” and “digging for gold” will be up later today. I’ll be posting illustrated sayings every week so you can look forward to “wicked”, “you can’t get there from here”, “huck a louey”, “ayuh”, “fish or cut bait”, etc.
Illustrator’s note: Please keep in mind that the sayings may not all be specific or unique to New England. But a good majority of them are and this is a blog about New England style and culture and it is part of a N’East Illustrated series. So please fire away with any suggestions you might have!
