Old Sketchbook week: No.7 Random pages.

Some sketchbooks were patchy, a collection of loose leaves and some were too full of certain ex-girlfriends (I didn’t know whether they’d be embarrassed or would like it). These pages were picked from around 1991 -1993.

A Vorticist abstraction.

A linocut which was inspired by Irving Penn and Italian Vogue. This one was on acetate.

Kylie in the middle of lots of loud, colourful abstraction.

SW & me. From a photobooth photo. Made with charcoal, watercolour, gouache and cigarette ash probably Winstons.

    Oh wow. Trev, I have just come back from my holiday and found this series of posts – I saw the first before I went and was quite jealous – I have retained very little of my student output (not that I was up to much back then.)

    I have enjoyed seeing these images though, as I can see the influences of the era, and the familiarity of sketchbooks as they lose their self-conciousness – something that has long since gone from student life, alas, alas. Its not that sketchbooks aren’t still part of the form, but being a student can be much less involving these days; the need to earn a living to finance the studying (as well as the lack of recognition that students have always been poor!) means that students no longer while away the hours filling sketchbooks with possibilities and trivialities.

    I have loved seeing these – more please!

    Many thanks!
    As always your thoughts are right on the money.

    I keep on finding more stuff, so there will be at least five more days of this.
    Which is more like old sketchbook fortnight.
    I’ve not shown the really studenty stuff – I tries to have a weight that it sadly lacks.
    As for the poetry…!
