Someone Else’s Cat

2 Sep

Benji 1

Husb and I had a socially distanced visit to some friends over the recent Bank Holiday. Their lives are graced by a magnificent Bengal cat. Unforunately, he was socially distancing as well so I wasn’t able to have a cuddle with him. I took some photos and had a quick scribble this evening, with Faber Castell Pitt drawing pens onto a scrap of paper made in the historic mill at Wookey Hole.

 

 

A Chance To Own One Of My Artworks

I have some small screenprints for sale, inspired by my drawings of the taxidermy collection at Swansea Museum. I have given these antique 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.

In this one, I combined the image of the bird with snippets of text of things my Nana used to say. She used to take me to Swansea Museum a lot when I was small and I could hear her voice in the back of my head as I was sitting and drawing the birds and bugs.

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

 

Use It Or Lose It!

10 Nov

10 who

Yesterday, Husb and I joined family members and assorted Whovians on the Doctor Who Locations walk’n’talk, organised by the Swansea Library Service. It was a part of an excellent programme of free events coming up this month. I sketched one of the Who companions outside the Kardomah Cafe in Portland Street, that has a number of links to the programme as well as to Dylan Thomas and his contemporaries. It was a most excellent tour around the city, but a shame there were not more people there to enjoy an event that our local council has put on for free for its citizens. Come on people, use it or lose it!

I drew this with Faber Castell Pitt pens, sizes F and M into my Laura Ashley clothbound A5 sketchbook that I’d prepared with some ripped brown wrapping paper stuck in with a Pritt stick. It’s got to be Pritt – accept no substitute!
