Current time and date: 20:38, Sep 2
Average hours of sleep: 6-7
The last thing I Googled was: some horrendously technical thing at work
My most used phrase(s): Hmmm.
First word that comes to mind: headache (because I have one. Again)
Last thing said to a family member: bye
One place that makes me happy and why: standing in front of an easel drawing
How many blankets I sleep under: 1 duvet

Scribbled ideas and sketches for a future piece of work
I don’t usually share preparatory notes and sketches because they’re drawn from imagination without any reference. They exist to record an idea for a future piece of artwork, not as artwork themselves, and so are frequently out of proportion or just badly drawn. Like this one.

Just did a 10 minute charcoal self-portrait to warm up. It’s not very impressive, but hey, it’s just a warm-up.

I think I’ve been getting too used to drawing from photographs instead of drawing from life. This needs to be fixed soon with a whole load of life drawing.

I’m not sure what the story behind this one is yet - it’s still emerging.

this is one of my favorites of yr autoportraits

Thanks - I thought I’d try something slightly different for once and obscure my visage with light instead of shadows.

This week has been tiring, both mentally and physically.

Nothing traumatic has happened, just the constantly draining day-to-day nonsense combined with too many early morning (pre-6am) starts. As such no artwork has been attempted.

I’m hoping the weekend will be calm and relaxing, and that I can start a new drawing. I’m feeling a bit disconnected from artwork in general - working from photographs rather than from life has a deadening effect on my creativity (it might not be the same for other artists, and if so I’m jealous).

Anyway, tomorrow morning I’ll take a slow wander into the North Laine and maybe buy a book or a few comics, stare into the windows of the guitar shops, have a coffee, and try to re-settle myself. Art will come.

ItsAllMonochrome will be the name of my first fashion line for the chromatographically challenged.

I’ve been doing monochrome fashion since 1985, I’ll have you know…
