The other night I thought I would lay out all the drawings I have made for the #allthesmallthings exhibition. The floor was covered from corner to corner. I am rather impressed with the number of drawings I have created in spaces where I thought I did not have time to draw. It is interesting to me to see how much my style has changed and developed in just a few short months. In August I was asked to draw people for the DECIEM launch event in Edinburgh. I was like ‘People?! You want me to draw people? Have you seen my artwork? I do NOT do people. Or animals. Buildings yes, but nothing on two or four legs thanks very much.’ So then I started drawing my friends and family and my obsession with drawing people caught in-between moments grew from there.
There is certainly a style growing from this challenge and I’m so glad I can use materials on the hoof. I think of those artists with massive studio spaces and hours to be in those spaces. One day I shall have that but for now I will embrace my parameters and see what great things I can make from here.
As for the COMPETITION part of the title, I have a little competition on the go. It’s easy to play along. All you have to do is Follow this blog or Follow me on Twitter or Instagram and tag in a friend. What do you get for this small yet big action? On January 31st I will choose two names from a hat and will draw a photo of you/your family/your favourite building/your best holiday snap/your favourite cafe/your prized shop dog in my style.
Please share and thanks for following.
