I admit that sometimes, the best part of my day at college is not the course itself. Right by campus, we have a fab store 'The Range', which I think is what 'Woolworths' should have morphed into, instead of becoming bankrupt. I have managed to locate a lot of art supplies from there, some of which contributed to my Hamlet project this time last year. A few decades ago, whilst in my mid teens, I used chalk pastels to draw some daffodils - which turned out alright, actually.
I have used them since, mostly drawing Raymond Brigg's Father Christmas - Santa dressed in dungarees eating lobster thermidor was a hit, amongst others. Not sure whether I will draw topical stuff as yet, maybe the tin mine I have been photographing recently. Have not done any artwork for a long while; think it's time I did. I am a far better writer than artist, but it's a great way to unwind.
