Littering the internet
Ive never been very good at maintaining personal blogs. At 20 I set up a (quickly defunct) Blogger account and I've had a long running, poorly maintained Tumblr blog since then, which I am retiring in favour of writing via my own website (i.e here). Im approaching this blog with the aim of keeping the website fresh, as updates to the core content happen quarterly at best. Hopefully it will be successful as a complimentary addition to the site's content; if this blog post is still the only one up here in August then you'll know I've failed.
By way of introduction
Have a look at home page of this site for a little bit of biography. I spend most of my time teaching drawing, writing about drawing and drawing, so expect lots of that in future posts. I run the small, independent drawing school Draw in Brighton, co-direct the Drawing Circus and I paint, mostly in oils.
What you'll see on here
I'll aim to keep the posts regular and informative, with a mixture of reviews (of exhibitions, drawing books and art materials), posts about my own artwork, teaching drawing and a few thoughts on drawing theory. I'll save flagrant self promotion for Twitter and Facebook.
Thanks for reading,
Teaching, drawing, writing and painting.
