Another picture...

I'm sticking to straight drawing just now and animals seem to be the theme. As long as I'm drawing for the time being then that's good enough for me and eventually I'll start using colour again.
And isn't it so nice to just draw for the sake of drawing.

A picture...

Yes, it has happened. I picked up a pencil and drew. As I was feeling Christmassy in October I wanted to draw a reindeer but settled for an axis deer instead. It's nothing exciting but it's a start and I thought I should share it with you.
Hurrah for drawing xxx

Traffic Cones and Transcona.

I don't feel like I've done much work recently but I've had a lot going around in my brain. Anyway, I was walking through perth a few weeks ago and I saw a few traffic cones set out as in the picture below. Well this is basically what went through my head when I saw them. Random, I know but I couldn't get it out of my head, so here it is...banished from my thoughts and destined to spend the rest of it's life on the internet. 


Secondly, there's an artist whose poetry I think is great, the guy's called Clive Holden and he did a bunch of poems called 'Trains of Winnipeg' a few years back, some of which are set over music by the Weakerthans (one of my favourite bands, hence how I got into listening to it) It's not the most upbeat, cheerful thing to listen to if I'm honest but I always enjoy it anyhow. One poem is called 'Transcona', it's not too long so give it a listen over at CyclopsPress if you will before or whilst looking at my picture. Also, I am aware that he is talking about Trains and Coaches in this poem but I found this pitcure of Transcona and I just really like it is all, I have such an urge to visit this place even though it doesn't sound like there's too much there. 

Thank you Transcona for bringing me home.

P.S. How come nobody has posted anything in ages, come people shape up...
