Welcome to 2015! This blog started two years ago and now gets about 50 visitors a day, so many thanks for your ongoing interest in my hobby. After sketching every day for almost four years I’ve settled to a particular set of resources, mostly fountain pens and dilute ink in water-brushes, and recurring themes are becoming clearer (my left hand, toys, the unsuspecting general public about the city, skulls, my left hand again). But change is good so this year you can brace yourselves for some self-portraits (shudder…), more use of different brushes, and I’ll try to do some more generally urban sketches, not just people sat on benches but also their surroundings. I aim to carry on posting about twice a week (always including a musical hyper-link) and suggestions for posts/themes are welcome. So in the spirit of new beginnings here is my right hand in the first sketch of the year.
