Boom Boom!

Baby Boomers will remember the catch phrase ‘Boom Boom’ from Basil Brush, one of the funniest puppets on television, in my opinion. Here’s another of the Baby boomers I’m drawing as part of my plan to do 100 portrait sketches of people born between 1946 and 1964, the Baby Boomer generation. Eventually, I’m planning an installation featuring all the drawings I’ve done, but that’s a long way off yet.



Recently, I have also been travelling across South Wales with Rhondda-born archaeologist Dewi Bowen and Swansea film maker Melvyn Williams in all weathers with my portable drawing board, portfolio of Fabriano paper and a bag full of assorted artist’s materials.  Dewi is researching his latest book on Neolithic monuments and Melvyn is making a documentary film of our literary and artistic adventures.

I’ve done around 50 drawings now and these will be exhibited in my solo show in The Worker’s Gallery in the Rhondda Valley in September. Please click here to find out more about it.

And if you want to see some of my other artwork, please click on the image below.
