Sketchers at the recent wonderful Manchester Symposium, and sketches of me by other sketchers, sometimes while I sketched them; the Symposium felt like a hall of mirrors at times, a walk-in Escher! From the top there’s Lapin not sketching, Favian EE lecturing, Pete Scully sketching (followed by his of me, leaning intently towards him, concertina sketchbook spilling onto the floor!), Gerard Michel (and then me sketching him by him, simultaneously), Arno Hartman leading a workshop, Paul Heaston (sketching by the canal, and giving a workshop slightly obscured by ComicCon attendees!), and Tina Koyama sketching in Bath (followed by hers of me lecturing). Then there’s me lecturing by Nina Johansson, Marion Rivolier, and one other (sorry, I didn’t note the artist’s name). “O wad some Power the giftie gie us, To see oursels as ithers see us!” – Robert Burns.
I love it! And I am quite envious at all the fun you’ve all had in Manchester.
I highly recommend going to the next one if you can. Any good excuse for visiting Chicago next July?
I will totally go when I finished nursing school and have had a paycheck again for a few months. I hope for 2019. 🙂
These are all wonderful! There’s something strange and hilarious about sketchers sketching sketchers while probably being sketched!
At the next Symposium we should try and set a record for a chain sketch of sketchers sketching sketchers etc…
This post, and your quote, kind of made my day. Thanks for sharing.
That’s lovely, thanks! I learnt the quote as a child, from a nearby gift shop called ‘The Giftie Gie us”!
Not at all envious … *gaaah*, why didn’t I go? 🙂 Lovely sketches of you and yours of them … Everyone with their own style.
It was a hoot! And the range of styles and approaches fascinating, one of the real strengths of the whole USk thing.
