Had a day at Swansea Print Workshop, working with a group of other artists during Open Access sessions. The organisation receives very little public funding and is mostly run by it’s member / volunteers, so I spent quite a bit of my time there today on the sort of admin tasks that are frustratingly uncreative,Continue reading “Black To White”
I’m a lifelong insomniac, so this morning at around 5am I thought I might as well use my sleeplessness productively and grabbed a sketchbook from the side of the bed, a black Daler Rowney spiral bound A5, and using a white conte crayon, I scribbled Husb. He could sleep through anything.

Enough of all this digital nonsense! Back to basics with my lovely Faber Castell Pitt drawing pens and my cloth bound sketchbook. Today I met a surprisingly fast moving tortoise called Jimmy in Cardiff. Here he is, indulging his cucumber habit.
Finally got to see the new Star Trek film this evening and it was brilliant. People like me are known as Dolbies, we stay to the bitter end, watching all the credits. I prefer the word Geeks lol. I like to spot interesting sounding jobs and find out what they are. Today it was theContinue reading “Dolby And Proud”
