You know, I'm in split minds about New Years resolutions. Yes, I do believe that possibly they are a way of setting yourself up for failure. However, last year, with the help of my very talented friend, Caryl Hart, I found out the value of writing a business plan. Huh? Well, in some ways, a business plan and New Years resolutions are pretty similar.
Anyway, I thought I'd go ahead and set out a few drawing aims for the year.
One of those aims is to go in search of my perfect Mod drawing.
The 1960s are my absolute favourite time in history. I'm always inspired by the Mod movement. My love of it started when I was a kid, watching old 60s British black and white films and grew deeper through my father's record collection. The style, the clothes, the music, the art, I love everything about it. So I want to make a special drawing that reflects that.
What does all that have to do with desert boots? Well, for those not in the know, they were part of the uniform of any self respecting young Mod.
So, that's one of my drawing resolutions for the year. I'll be setting out the rest, post by post, over the next couple of weeks.
