Well England have exited the World Cup in a highly embarrassing way!! Was it Fabio's fault, the media's or the over paid millionaires ?? I believe it is a combination of all three. We need to reassess english football from the grass routes up. Anyway this isn't a football blog its and art one! But now we are out I can now get back to concentrating on building up me portfolio and laying future plans for starting this as a real venture.
As I mentioned in my post the other day, parents edge recently unearthed some of my art homework from when I was 14. While I was back in the shire this weekend I decided to have a quick dig around myself. As I rummaged through the boxes a bright light emanated from a dark corner, angel's began to sing, seraphim's carrying the lord himself appeared..... and there it was.... the drawing bible of my youth!!!...... RH's - Your Cartoon Time
I spent many hours learning from the oracle through these pages.... It was from hours of doodling and this book that my love for drawing cartoons came.
I also found a drawing of a leopard I did at 13 for a competition for Chester Zoo - these were exciting times in Cheshire obviously! I won my age group with it and received some local press coverage (small column in the Chester Chronicle with my side parting and cardigan shining in the sunlight). But more importantly, I won a ALBA Hi-Fi (yep one of those crappy ones) and the sponsorship of a leopard for 2 yrs (which I creatively named Leo on my plaque and the Zoo forgot to remove for 6 yrs).
A brief view of the past I thought might be of interest. Now to the future.
The cathartic musings of a CRE8IV mind, living at the EDGE of chaos.
