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
