Maybe. I’m using a Mac and I hate it! I’ll never slag off Bill Gates again! Here are the first drawings I did on my journey (I hope). There’s one of pigeons hanging out on a rooftop in Chepstow and the others are very quick sketches that I made as the bus to Heathrow was traveling through Wales early in the morning. The low sun threw vast shadows across the frosted fields.

I shall persevere with the Mac (I have no choice) and bring you some more sketches 🙂

Mad Old Bat

2 May

One thing this trip to Boise, Idaho has already taught me, Get Out OF The Dark Age! When it comes to IT I’m so used to faffing around with lots of, mostly, archaic technology that I’m used to. My mobile phone is a phone, my PCs and laptop are out of the Ark, but you learn to cope until you’re in a situation where something doesn’t work as it normally does.If I stopped being a stubborn mad old bat and got a smartphone, it would have everything I needed in one place. I think I’m converting.

so I’m blogging on a borrowed Mac iPad and I haven’t yet figud out how to download photos so I can post them here. Hang on a minute, something’s happening. It’s linking to a photo, I think! well, let’s see what it’s done, eh?!

Yaaaay it’s one of the drawings I did from the bus taking me from Swansea to London to get the plane. It was very early and there was a low sun casting deep shadows acros frosted fields. Only enough time, s few seconds, to scribble quick impressions. Tomorrow I promise to find out how to put all the drawings up properly.
