Well, here we are; 366 days later I have drawn 366 cartoons and literally filled my sketch-a-day book. It has been an amazing experience, one that has taught me just how important it is to have a discipline when it comes to anything creative.
It has also taught me to be able to draw anything anywhere, no exceptions, no excuses! I have drawn on/in planes, trains, station platforms, waiting rooms, on holiday and in other people’s houses and the odd hotel. Most of them, however, were drawn at mine and Phil’s dining table where I seem to get most of my inspiration.
I chose not to share every single cartoon as some of them are quite personal, especially around the time Mum died. As time passes, and the bruises heal, I am sure all will see the light of day at some point.
Now to say a few thank yous now that this project has come to an end. I know this is pretentious, wanky and pompous but this has been a big deal for me so here it goes…
To all the ‘friends’ and people who are rude to me; to the politicians who fuck this planet up; you inspire some of my darker material and I couldn’t do it without you
– fuck you very much 🙂
Anyone who likes or comments and anyone who has ever given me constructive feedback (Jodie, I’m still working on those legs!)
Kristy for giving me the sketch-a-day book in the first place
Mum and Gran for inspiring and encouraging me to draw in the first place. I hope you can see what I’ve done this year…somehow.
Phil for being my biggest fan and fairest critic
Happy New Year and see you out there in 2017
However you spend this holiday season, I hope you and your family have a lovely time.
Here’s to a bright 2017.
