A White Raven Emerges

Inspiration can be a slow process for me. I heard a poem performed by Welsh artist and rapper Rufus Mufasa back last year which featured a raven and it’s been buried somewhere inside and emerged a few days ago. As a female raven, as a manifestation of the ancient Welsh goddess Brânwen and now, today,Continue reading “A White Raven Emerges”

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”

The Hairiest Man

  Another drawing from the Cardiff gig last week, the launch of Rufus Mufasa’s album, “Fur Coats From The Lion’s Den”. This is Steve Andrews, possibly the hairiest man I’ve ever seen and also a fantastic musician.    

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 ……..”
