The Jolly Boomer

And the Baby Boomers are coming in thick and fast! Just completed my second day drawing Boomers at  Galerie Simpson in Swansea’s High Street and here’s a jolly Boomer with the smiliest eyes. I started out last year, aiming to draw 100 Baby Boomers – my generation – and I’m nearly half way through. I’ll have to get my skates on because I want to complete them all by the end of this year.


Since February, I have 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.
