Top End Boomer

13 Jan

Gibson G

And another recent Baby Boomer sketch, using a graphite stick into an A5 spiral bound sketchbook. This is someone at the upper end of the Boomer demographic, which goes from 1946 to 1964. As a generation we cover a huge range of cultural influences, music from rock’n’roll through rock, glam rock and heavy metal to punk; art from Abstract Expressionism through Pop Art to the beginnings of Conceptual art and politics from Socialism through Thatcherism and Blairism and back to Thatcherism again . Interesting times.

        It’s ok. We have 1°C here. That is pretty warm in contrast to the weather last week. 😉 But more cold comes from the North soon.
