I really enjoyed Eurovision this year. I especially liked Malta’s entry “His name is Jeremy, working in I.T.”
Our new shed arrived yesterday so today with the kind help of our good friend David it was all hands on deck as we raced against time to put it up. Now that it’s finished, I love it but it’s not up to my usual standard as seen here.
My imaginary friend Frank Pebbles and I are having a beard growing competition. I’m not sure who’s winning at the moment.
The library used to be one of my wet weather spots for people watching and drawing but I haven’t done it for a while. Yesterday though I found a seat and started to draw an old guy who had fallen asleep.
I was going to leave it for him on the arm of his chair for when he woke up but I thought that might creep him out a bit so it remains in my notebook. I might build on this, drawing people who use our library for other purposes like drawing or sleeping.
What I also enjoy about drawing in public places is watching the people walking by. They try so hard not to make it obvious as they strain their necks to see what I’m drawing. All they need to do is just say ‘hello’, sit next to me and I’ll show them.
I’ve finished my latest zine called Shelf Life. It features Lego men getting up to no good on one of our shelves. I’ve currently dishing it out to various people before I start trading it for other zines people have made.
I’m working in Frome for a couple of days this week and I had the opportunity after today’s meeting to take a trip down the road to see The Bicycle Academy - I’ve mention them previously here. It was great to see the set up there and was very impressed with what they’ve achieved. It was also nice to meet Andrew too.
Thank you for the badges!
Seeing as though the weather is taking a turn for the better we all ventured out to visit Mottisfont again. This Bank Holiday weekend saw them having a pooh stick racing event and Charlie loved throwing the twigs off the bridges and watching them float away.
This week’s Illustration Friday is titled Tribute and it got me and my pen thinking about performers in the spotlight.
I’m currently experimenting with a couple of drawing ideas and have been making these letters up for people. I really like doing these as there proving to be a nice break from the figurative work that I’ve been doing rather a lot lately. I’m aiming to get the whole alphabet requested before the year’s out!
