Interesting times. Since I came back to London a few weeks ago my internal Situationometer™ is showing some straaange readings: somewhere between fun, sticky and dread. It’s a rubbish situationometer. Gives no useful information at all. As soon as I can afford it I’m going to get a new one.
Last week’s session was a perfect reintroduction to figure drawing – a tall muscled guy who despite having borderline narcolepsy, bless, gave good anatomy. I also noted last week that the standard of the artists had improved over the year. That’s unsurprising of course – drawing is a skill that only gets better with regular practise. Life drawing is no different.
Back in London, picking up the pieces of pre-China me (and shoving others under the sofa – they live there now) and one thing I missed like the bejonkers was life drawing.
I’ve just been asked to join a blogging group of other children’s illustrators! This is my debut post and it will appear on the Big Little Tales website at http://biglittletale.tumblr.com/

New book coming soon for Oxford University Press
