#allthesmallthings competition

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.
