out of the blue

From this;
To this;
For this;

You are probably sick to the back teeth of me drawing school desks, I know I am. But, I thought I'd share this with you. I was invited to contribute to this Urban Art exhibition by creating a piece of work on a piece of cardboard. It's all in aid of Cardboardshelter, a charity that raises funds for The Big Issue.
Drawing on cardboard was something of a revelation to me. I have only ever drawn on white or cream paper before. I loved using the brownish background, it has opened up host of possibilities, and is something I will do more of.
Oh, this is my 300th post! Surely, that can't be right?

300 posts? Congratulations! I love this drawing - love the doodling, love the legs and it's on cardboard - even more brilliant! Wish I could go to that exhibition. It sounds cooool. I'm sure your work will go down a storm.

This is brilliant. An extension of the 'found pen' approach applying it to a piece of cardboard and creating magic. For me this is true art. Keep doing these things!

Cardboard, eh? I like the dark ground, too. Congrats on being chosen to participate in a good cause. The former school teacher in me hopes you aren't defacing desks anywhere, though your drawing is fascinating.

Thanks, everyone.

I can't quite believe that this is the 3ooth post. Quite unbelievable. I'm not sure that I'd ever got to 300 if it wasn't for the support and encouragemnet that I get from all you guys. Now I know that I'll be drawing forever. Thank you ALL.

Another great picture - love the socks! You've got such a way with detail.

I do a lot of acrylic work on cardboard actually - I love the way it grabs the paint. It's a wonder I don't have a ton of backless sketchbooks around. Oh hang on, I do...
