Here’s a couple of images for the current emergency.
A couple of weeks ago I posted this on Facebook:
In the light of impending Br%&!t and climate apocalypse and a large birthday later this year, I have decided to give myself permission to focus on art this summer. So I will be taking a short sabbatical from editing and proofreading starting in June. Various plans are coming together, which mean I will be looking for people willing to sit for some drawings. Watch this space! And let me know if you fancy sitting still for an hour or three at some point.
The silver lining/antidote to apocalyptic thinking … stop worrying about how you’ll cope in retirement (or when the washing up will happen) and just make stuff.
It seems that as soon as you give yourself this kind of permission it’s hard not to start thinking and planning and then playing, regardless of self-imposed schedules.
Beginning to get an idea out of my head and into the world – and immediately seeing that my planned scale doesn’t look as I imagined it would. That will save some time and expense later – three cheers for maquettes.

The children are going on strike to protect their futures. It’s long past time we so-called grown-
ups got our heads out of the sand and took responsibility for the broken world we have given them. We should be demanding that governments stop supporting fossil fuels, road building and airport expansion, and instead take the resources we western nations pour into ‘defence’ and consumerism and spend them on greening our economy and society.
Playing with the same approach to abstract (random) drawing but in a different medium, charcoal instead of ink or pencil, leads to quite a different result.
Playing with the logo and symmetry (if you haven’t heard about #extinctionrebellion yet you probably will soon)
