I don’t have much to blog about today (some of you might be thinking that’s no different to usual haha!) so instead I thought I’d share some arty things.
First up some drawings…I love to draw dogs, but I really wish I actually had any talent haha!
Up until I was about 22 I hadn’t drawn since I was a young kid; then all of a sudden I started drawing dogs, always in biro. Rarely I would add splashes of colour…
…but mostly they were just black and white.
They were generally all in the same style.
But some varied a little.
I’ve always wanted to be good at drawing, but that’s as good as I get!
I really, really admire people who can draw though 🙂
For months I had a burst of drawing half a dozen dogs each day, but then I started a new anti-psychotic which gave me chronic akathisia. My legs and arm jittered 24/7 for 2.5 years, meaning that entire time I wasn’t able to draw (or read, or eat with a knife and fork etc).
I didn’t draw for years; I stopped the anti-psychotic about 18 months ago and I still haven’t drawn – in fact I forgot I even used to do it until I found the drawings and took these pics!
Maybe I’ll start again sometime 🙂
Alongside photography I also edit some of the photos I take…not just making them b&w or upping the contrast, but messing with areas of colour too, like this!
So there you go. Boring art blog over with 😉
