Hey hey. New works again. I really wanted to do IF this week, but uni + Christmas is a lethal cocktail :(
These were a short project, less than a week actually, because I'm falling back into the habit of spending ages planning & not making any art when that makes me depressed cos I'd rather be making art. Well.
The thinkin here was to still be drawing for the kiddywinks, but something heavy & you know, 'issue'-y. I was bullied pretty henious when I was tiny, seems being ginger is not that helpful at that age, so choosing an 'issue' didn't take long. BullyingUK are a seriously neat charity, running Anti-Bullying Week every year to raise awareness & encourage kids to think more about being nicer to eachother.
When my mother died, it made it kinda hard to cope with the bullying at school & my self-esteem issues on top, so I just sort of, quit school for four years. Skipped my GCSEs, got home tutoring & a lot of people with clipboards talking quietly, & started drawing pictures to help me ignore real things. Story ends with me going into post-16 study to do a lot of art studies, now I'm here at illustration. Weird.
Love to hear whatcha think of them, anyway. Peace out -xxx-
