I came across this old drawing while I was going through old art pads this weekend. I bought it in St.Lucia in 1985. Funny to think I had drawn a souvenir decades before the EDM challenge but hadn't remembered it!
I was doing some scanning of these old drawings for my new blog, Sketches by Fiz. There are a couple of things there that I haven't posted before but otherwise I don't think it will be of interest if you've been reading this blog for a while. It's just a blog I wanted to create for myself and if necessary to direct anyone who is interested there first.
There was mention, at the life class, of participating in an exhibition and I would love to as I would like to start selling work. The venue would be an ideal showcase. I don't want to jinx it by saying too much, it may not even happen, but I'm feeling quite good for being asked!
In other more trivial news (well, that's what this blog is for!) I saw the new Bond film last night and very good it was too! I have a teenager in the house who tells me more than I ever needed to know about Bond and Aston Martins and he enjoyed it too so it must be alright! (He went with friends in another cinema - can't be seen dead with his parents at that age!) I loved the opening credits. Finally a Bond without those floating woman, instead, it seemed to me, a celebration of his masculinity. I felt it was a great film for women too, really breaking the mould. The car however, was the real star. There wasn't much to see of it but when it first appeared there was an audible gasp in the cinema! It was absolutely gorgeous! Unless Charles Saatchi discovers me, I may have to sell my drawings for a couple of hundred years before I can afford one of those!
