I love it when one post inadvertently flows neatly into the next. This one is connected to my last post in a couple of ways. Not just visually, via Anah's gorgeous pink portrait. But, also I got this block of post-it notes in Bologna. In fact, Anah got it for me. She was very very good at getting all the freebies and at the Fair there were lots of freebies to be had.
I completely forgot I had these post-it notes until I stumbled across them last week. Since then I have obsessively drawn these very quick portraits of girls, until I'd finished the block. They are all ladies that I work with or from tv. Jacqueline Wilson is probably the only recognisable one. There's also a self portrait in there somewhere. Each one took about a minute or two.
It was an interesting little project and is something I am going to do more of from now. Not post-it note portraits specifically. But drawing people. When I was a kid I only ever drew people, I don't know why I stopped. So that's another of my drawing resolutions. Not just for the New Year but for life.
