Newspaper Scribbles

1 Jan

I like drawing on newspaper, it’s free so there’s no fretting over the possibility of spoiling an expensive piece of paper. It’s good for doing quick sketches en plein air when I’m out and about, when I’m drawing from life and have just a few seconds to get something down on the paper before someone moves. But it gets damp and crinkles so it’s no good for keeping. It’s purely for practice. I used willow charcoal to draw these.

A Chance To Own One Of My Artworks

I have some small screenprints for sale, inspired by my drawings of the antique taxidermy collection at Swansea Museum. I have given these vintage artifacts a modern twist by combining them with images of rubbish – old fruit nets, bubble wrap and plastic – highlighting the problem of human pollution and how it affects wildlife.

To buy my work on the Swansea Print Workshop site please click the image to the left.

20 percent of the cost of each screenprint sold goes to support Swansea Print Workshop, which receives no public funding.
