Scribbling At The One Man Show

Husb and I took a trip to Cardiff Tuesday evening to see the writer and broadcaster David Sedaris perform his one-man show – he’s hilarious. I had a bit of a scribble first. It’s nearly always backs of heads at gigs but sometimes there are some great textures, like this woman’s hair. That was aContinue reading “Scribbling At The One Man Show”

Crowd Surf My Coffin

Oh WOW! It was so good to be at a live gig this week, Skindred at The Tramshed in Cardiff, first gig in over 18 months. It was AWESOME! I was so energised and danced and bounced for hours (killed me for the next two days though). But I still found a bit of timeContinue reading “Crowd Surf My Coffin”

Bruised, Sore And Hoarse. Marvellous!

Didn’t post here last night because I was AT A GIG – Skindred – for the first time since lockdown started. That’s 18 months without live music. It was BRILLIANT but I’m absolutely knackered today. My feet feel bruised, my neck is sore from headbanging and I can hardly speak because I screamed myself hoarse.Continue reading “Bruised, Sore And Hoarse. Marvellous!”

Breakfast With Dippy

Went on a family trip to Cardiff today with Husb and two younger relatives, to see Dippy the Diplodocus who is touring the UK. The National Museum in Cardiff had laid on a breakfast viewing, with sausage baps, warm cinammon rolls and squidgy dino-themed cookies. It was grand. We were all excited to see theContinue reading “Breakfast With Dippy”

Walking In Their Footsteps

  Here’s the final drawing I did last Bank Holiday Monday, when I joined a group of women from across South Wales to remember the original women’s peace march that led to Greenham Common back in 1989. We set out from Swansea really early, then had speeches, songs and a short march around Alexandra GardensContinue reading “Walking In Their Footsteps”

Banners And Badges

  Here’s another drawing I did into my A4 hardbacked sketchbook on Bank Holiday Monday, during the celebration of the anniversary of the first women’s peace march to Greenham Common in 1981.  This is at the first part of the commemoration, at Alexandra Gardens in Cardiff, and there’s one of the protesters with her capContinue reading “Banners And Badges”

Commemorating The Peace March

  Yesterday I went on a journey, leaving Swansea by coach at 8.30 am, heading to Cardiff to commemorate the start of the Women’s Peace March to Greenham Common, way back in 1981. Organised by Women’s Archive Wales, there were speeches and songs in Alexandra Gardens and we took a walk around the area withContinue reading “Commemorating The Peace March”

The Airhead In A Spotted Knitted Coat

So when I go to a gig, I go to listen and enjoy and maybe have a bit of a dance (although a lot of people don’t think that headbanging is dancing) and I assume that other people are there for the same reason, so it really narks me when you get some airhead whoContinue reading “The Airhead In A Spotted Knitted Coat”

Drawing To A Rhythm

I was at the launch of Rufus Mufasa’s album in Cardiff and having a scribble when I found that I was making marks to the rapping. I often listen to rock music when I’m working but I’ve never noticed my drawing being affected. Mind you, there’s a bit of a difference between rap and progContinue reading “Drawing To A Rhythm”

On A Roll

    Sometimes I struggle to pull out my sketchbook and do a scribble every day, other times I’m on a roll, like I was the other night when Husb and I went to The Moon in Cardiff for an evening of rap, hip hop, beatbox, poetry and more at the launch of Rufus Mufasa‘sContinue reading “On A Roll”
