Here’s Winnie, a lovely little dog I drew as a commission.
Saturday was the opening night of this year’s Twitter Art Exhibit. This is an annual event that raises money for good causes by selling postcard sized pieces of original art. This year there were over a thousand entries from sixty-five different countries.
This video gives a good (and short) overview of what it’s all about and if you watch it to the end you can see my postcard by the presenter’s right elbow. Fame at last.
Someone very kindly bought my entry on the first night but there are still hundreds (literally) of amazing pieces of original art available to buy online. This is a great cause and a great opportunity to own some fantastic art for a reasonable price.
Last week I finished this commissioned drawing of Olivia. I’m quite pleased with how it turned out although I still struggle to take a good photo of my drawings.
It’s been a busy few weeks for me, with the day job and with drawing. I’ve been working on some commissions which I’m unable to share but in the meantime I’ve had most of my Drawing Dorset series on display at a coffee shop in Dorchester.
The work is for sale and it would, of course, be lovely if I did sell some of it. It’s enough, though (at least for now!), to have my pictures on display in public. I draw because I enjoy it but in the end all art (or attempts at art) is meant to be seen.
There isn’t long left – publicity clearly isn’t one of my strengths – but if you happen to find yourself near the Engine Room in Poundbury, Dorchester in the next week or so then it would be wonderful if you popped in. The coffee there is excellent.
