I’m on a roll with the Baby Boomer sketches. I’m trying to do as many as possible at The SPace before our lease runs out in mid-February. If there are any Baby Boomers in the Swansea area who fancy posing for a 30 minute sketch and being part of this project, please get in touch. I can’t guarantee that it will look exactly like you – if I was doing a formal portrait I’d do loads of drawings over several sittings. Sometimes the sketches look very much like the sitter, sometimes not and sometimes just a bit. But the important thing for me is meeting and talking to other Baby Boomers and capturing those fleeting moments in a quick drawing.
Baby Boomers are those born between 1946 and 1964. I’m aiming to draw a hundred Baby Boomers over the next few months. I’m up to almost 30. Eventually the drawings will be converted to photographic silkscreens and put into a print installation.
