all i wanna do

Finally, I feel my life is my own again. My exhibition is up and running at the Buxton Gallery and Museum. I am exhibiting over forty drawings. Please call in if you are in the area. It's running until the 14th of August.

My exhibition began on June 4th which, coincidentally, is the same day as world Drawing Day. Or is there any such thing as coincidence? Whatever, I rather like the fact that both of these days coincide. Drawing Day has again set the annual challenge of uploading one million drawings so get on over there. You can read more about it, and upload your drawings, HERE.

I hope, in some way, that both of these events will inspire people to get drawing. Sheesh, I hope they inspire ME to get drawing! I'm desperate to get back to it. It's not good for me when I don't draw. So please keep coming back and I'll reward you with all the drawings I've been suppressing for far too long.

This post really must hold the record for the use of the word 'drawing'. I think I am trying to tell myself something. Something like "Draw, Joseph, DRAW!".

Glad to see you have an exhibit going. That's a real plus for your commercial side to your art. Hope you now get to get back to drawing something for the fun of it.

That's only 20 miles away from where I live. Now to convince someone with a car they want to go with me...

Best of luck with the exhibition - nice long run too! It's a bit too far for me I'm afraid, I'd love to see your drawings close up.
Do you get withdrawal symptoms if you don't draw? I get very cranky and peculiar if too many days go by without drawing or painting.
