I have unfortunately taken my eyes off the ball over the last few weeks with regards to my website, blog and artwork commissions. I put this down to the elation of no longer being mistaken as a peg legged pirate, having regained the usage of my right knee bone leg bone (e.g. no more crutches) and the start of the World Cup. But the proverbial finger has just been pulled out!
The still life sketches shown were unearthed by the Parents' Edge while recently clearing out their loft. I did these while I was a young 14/15 year old whipper snapper attending Tarporley County High school in 1991/2! It was very weird looking at these for the first time in 18 years, as I vividly remember doing each 1; where I was sat; what I was wearing (ouch.. dodgy shell suit bottoms at 1 point); the enjoyment combined with the internal battle against all things homework.
Developing my website and blog allowed me to document and understand my interests/progress/inspirations etc in a lot more detail. Seeing these drawings again allowed me to relive the enjoyment and passion for art through my 14 yr old eyes. Which led to me conjuring up images of straying from the path and finding may way back after many years, experiencing life but coming back full circle to where I was as a 14 yr old - with a burning passion for art. A little deep for a blog, lets just say now I'm concentrating on my art, it just feels right... like it did when I was drawing these sketches, thats why I wanted to share them.
Edge... over & out
