Working On Me

working on me

Chalk and charcoal ephemeral drawing onto newspaper

I’m reaching the end of my time drawing on the wall at The Bagpuss Window, Swansea’s pop-up artspace. Tomorrow is our last day and the keys go back to Coastal Housing Group on Thursday so that the building can be demolished to make way for new social housing. So it’s going to be put to good use. The final part of my drawing is a drawing of me drawing. There’s still a fair bit of work to do on the face because the likeness isn’t very good and I had to resist the temptation to shave a couple of stone off my body! My right hand also needs a lot of work but I hope to have the whole thing finished by 5pm tomorrow so I can take a final photograph and then – the end…….

    The end of the journey will be sad, but I’ve enjoyed looking over your shoulder during the ride. Thanks.

      Thanks Leonie. We have loads of still and moving images, soundtracks and new collaborations to build upon, so although the building has gone, the ethos and work continues…..

    Fabulous! I recognised this as you straight away so I don’t think the likeness is off at all. Will the drawing be demolished with the property?
