I'm currently working on a book that, unfortunately, I can't explain in its entirety yet as I don't want some smartarse to take the idea and pip me to the post (that's happened before severa times - see older blogposts)! What I can say is that I wanted to prove a point; that given limited resources - basically stuff lying around the house - anyone can make art. You don't need expensive oil paints or yew easels. You don't need a university education. All you need is inspiration, determination and the confidence to 'have a go' and enjoy doing so. Judging from what you all sent me, you had great fun!
Thank you so much - I will be contacting you all shortly to get your addresses so that I can send you your paltry reward: an original doodle by me.
And if all goes to plan (and my excellent agent is successful), some of these will end up in the finished book.
This was fun. perhaps we should have another challenge soon ... ?
