I had to spend 3 days in Oxford this week (work trip - boring meetings etc.) which meant that I completely failed to find a model for this weekend.

So I guess I’ll be sitting and reading - it’s not like I haven’t got enough to read (see previous post!) - with a break on Saturday to go and show some support for the Pride march.

Oh, and a quick reminder that I’m still looking for a model in Brighton for next weekend for some photography and/or drawing.

If anyone fancies doing me a favour…

…you could like - or even better, share - this status update on Facebook:

I’m trying to kick off some additional sales of my artwork, and even though I have over 1000 followers on my FB page, Facebook only shows each status update to about 150 of them … unless an update gets a lot of likes/shares, in which case it shows it to more of the people who have already told Facebook (by liking the page) that they want to see updates from my FB page! Gah!

Sounds interesting as I always was told drawing was inferior - but yeah, why do that to yourself?

Because I have to! Once I get an idea like that I have to pursue it. :)

because you enjoy the challenge? because you’re full of british guilt? because you’re possessed by the spirit of an ancient royal scribe? because your cats are punishing you for your shortcomings via mind-control? because because because because?

All of the above.

Started writing a blog post for my art blog on my main website about Drawing - what drawing means to me, why it matters, and why it’s not a lesser art form than painting, sculpture, etc.

I now realise it’s one of those posts that will take me a couple of week’s to write and involve hours of research.

Why do I do this to myself?

Sleeping till late afternoon does save you from confronting the worst of the heat, buy also it fucks up your life and everything goes to shit so swings and roundabouts.

elle-fei: glad it’s not just Brighton

courier5: glad it’s not just the UK!

andblackandgrey: unfortunately I’m blessed/burdened with a 9-5 job, otherwise I’d just be nocturnal.

I’m not meant for this weather - it leaves me short-tempered and disinclined to make any artwork.

Finally I can sleep.

I realised that I was doing you all a disservice by not keeping you up to date :)

New bigger 845 x 605mm drawing board solves the “paper is too big” problem of earlier this week. This is an important update and I thought you all should know!

And I’ve also posted this before, but I also really like this photograph of mine (from the series that inspired the drawing below)

Yes, I’m going through my artwork from earlier this year and wondering why I haven’t done much since!
