Silent Heads And A Silent Movie

23 Feb

Ink sketch: heads.

 

Didn’t get a chance to blog yesterday because after the studio, I went with Husb to Cardiff for a seminar on social networking research. Interesting data, surprising how YouTube is far more popular than Twitter in Wales. Seminars and conferences are great places for head studies, because people tend to be very still and quiet, listening rather than chatting as they are at the theatre, cinema or gigs. I like these two men’s heads, they’re full of character. Drawn with my favourite new pen, a Pilot V5 Hi-Techpoint 0.5 into my A6 cat-themed sketchbook.

Then we went down to Cardiff Bay for a bite to eat and to the Odeon to finally see The Artist. What a fabulous film. I was totally immersed in it. A wonderful piece of cinema, funny, moving and beautifully filmed. I hope it gets some Oscars. We’ve seen quite a few good films recently – The Woman In Black [terrifying], Hugo [amazing], The Muppets – don’t knock it – Miss Piggy is AWESOME! And there’s a cameo appearance by Dave Grohl! Unfortunately, we also wasted money seeing the second of Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes movies. Tripe IMHO.
