A big part of my Art Practice is the act of drawing, daily.
Every day (nearly) I sit down near a friend or family member, or just out at a cafe, and make a drawing. The drawings are posted on my blog called “Message in a Bottle” for any cyber wanderer to stumble on.
You can subscribe to “Message in a Bottle” and receive a drawing in your inbox every day – it is free.
Why would I send out a free drawing every day? I believe Visual Art can be seen as a collaboration between Artist and Viewer – by looking at my drawings you make them live and help them develop, in the same way that by going to a play your response affects how the actors perform.
The drawings continue my obsession with the moving human figure, and the impossibility of capturing movement in a painting or drawing.
Having started out using coloured pencils and aquarelles, I have recently moved to experimenting with iPad drawings. Tedious at first, I have warmed to the potential of the iPad for its immediacy, its reproducibility and its portability. I am sure I will return to the earthy feel of a good piece of paper eventually, but for now I have a lot to explore on the iPad.
