Dinosaurs In Platform Boots

Here’s another sketch from one of the local music bars. There’s a long history of music in Swansea and it seems to come and go in waves. When I was young – and dinosaurs roamed the earth (in platform boots) – there were LOADS of live music venues. Practically every night of the week. ThenContinue reading “Dinosaurs In Platform Boots”

Scribbling At The Gig

I was really inspired to sketch at the Rap gig at The Bunkhouse in Swansea on Saturday night. It was great, so upbeat. Not heavy metal but still excellent. So much energy, anger and sharp humour. A Chance To Own One Of My Artworks I have some small screenprints for sale, inspired by my drawingsContinue reading “Scribbling At The Gig”

Scribbling The Rap

Husb and I had a rare evening out last night, at a gig in The Bunkhouse featuring rappers from the Ladies Of Rage collective in Cardiff and Swansea’s Craze The Jack. I’ve always been a metalhead, but in the past three or four years I’ve been getting into Welsh rap. Of course, I had toContinue reading “Scribbling The Rap”

Rap Hands

Husb and I went out on Saturday night to the opening of an exhibition of graffiti inspired art at the excellent Cinema & Co in Swansea. There were also rap performers – Craze The Jack, Unity, Dope Biscuits and Rufus Mufasa and I took the opportunity to have a quick scribble while Craze The JackContinue reading “Rap Hands”

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”

Sketching And Stretching

I was scribbling in the dark at a venue called The Moon in Cardiff last week at an evening of performers of words and music gathered there by Rufus Mufasa at the launch of her album. Of course I had to have a scribble….. Here’s Beatbox Tangent who was moving so fast that a lot of theContinue reading “Sketching And Stretching”

A Scribble In The Darkness

Husb and I were up in the ‘Diff (that’s Cardiff if you’re outside Wales) earlier this week for an evening of words and music the like of which I haven’t heard before. I’ve always been a metal-head, headbanging’s in my blood, but I loved the different styles of music I heard the other night. RufusContinue reading “A Scribble In The Darkness”

I’m A Rock Chick But ……..

Husb and I were out in Cardiff on Tuesday night, at The Moon venue, to see the awesome poet, Rufus Mufasa and her friends, a crazy crew of rappers, poets and musicians. Now I’m a headbanger and rock chick and I’m not usually in to any other sort of music but the hip hop andContinue reading “I’m A Rock Chick But ……..”
