The drawing I did of my old room at Ann’s house with Sox in the window has just beaten it past 1400 entries into the Showcase 100 Exhibition in London next April. Yay!
Plus here’s three iPad sketches from last weekend at Greenwich
another old video of Talking Heads enjoying themselves
and nice graphics from Kate Moross.
Also I recommend Roger Scruton’s wee book Beauty: A Very Short Introduction, viz:
"…the modernists set out to reunite the artistic enterprise with its underlying spiritual aim. Modernism was not conceived as a transgression but as a recuperation: an arduous path back to a hard-won inheritance of meaning, in which beauty would again be honoured, as the present symbol of transcendent values. This is not what we see in the consciously ‘transgressive’ and ‘challenging’ art of today, which exemplifies a flight from beauty, rather than a desire to recover it"
