Art Proposal

At the beginning of June I applied for a place at a Manchester art exhibition that will be happening this coming September, and it’s ace to say that somebody has said yes to my very first art proposal. I’ll only be having a single piece of art on display, but it’s all very exciting to me and I’m feeling very positive about the whole thing. Life seems to be on the up. My new job begins on 20th June, so that gives me approximately a week of free time between the termination of my current job and the next. It will be lovely to plan what I need to get done in terms of the exhibition and I’ll also be able to make some social plans around my new schedule. The new job will be regular working hours, Monday to Friday, which means after almost ten years I’ll finally be able to have some kind of structure in my life and I like that idea very much. Not only will this mean I’ll be able get some much needed sleep, but it also means I’ll be able to put aside set working hours for my art stuff, which is something I’ve never been able to do since getting a full-time job. Recently I’ve been working on the drawings below. They are loosley based on the proposal and will eventually play a significant part of my future applications. I’m still focusing on the theme of ‘Don’t Remain Static‘, which I shall shed more light on during the progress of this blog. Meanwhile, I’m going to continue my drawings and hope to post more updates of my work very soon.

The human anatomy is something that I’ve never focused on- in drawing terms- but it’s certainly an area I hope to improve in. Today I sketched my hands using fineliner -the first two drawings for my sketchbook. I found proportion quite challenging, but with practice…
