I did this silly drawing today for a #mergimals twitter project – whereby you merge two animals in a drawing – an age old visual device but a fun one nonetheless. My original idea was pine marten octopus but I was rushed for time so used one of my old dog with tattoos and stuck on a seahorse ending – not my finest hour but like I say, harmless fun.
It’s been a busy week this week – my wee girl started school and my son started full time nursery. I am no longer a stay-at-home dad – which I find very sad but also liberating. I enrolled at college yesterday which was a bit of a marathon – sitting at a computer doing elementary numeracy and literacy ‘core skills’ exercises is not my idea of a good time – my head was mince by the end of it. Anyhoo, I start next Wednesday – first class is sculpture – ‘take a roll of wallpaper and a graphite stick’. Bring it on.
So I don’t know how much I’ll be blogging anymore – I won’t bore with details of college work and as I’m aiming for a strong portfolio I’m not going to be doing much personal work. Who knows though, I cannot say what I’ll do with the blog. I’ll need to change the about page for a start. Maybe I’ll find it therapeutic to come on here and empty my cranium form time to time.
