Cimetière du Père-Lachaise
Whilst recently in Paris I visited the Père Lachaise Cemetery home to the dead bodies of Oscar Wilde, Jim Morrison and Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres.
A quick drawing of a winding road in the cemetery, which captures the eerie atmosphere and sense of place through the way lines are selected and marks applied.

‘Xhibit is an open-submission exhibition that aims to present the finest works of art and design from across the University of the Arts London. Work in any medium can be submitted by current students from any college and selections are made by an expert judging panel’
I decided to enter this exhibition run by UAL, the umbrella university of several Art and Design Colleges in London. Sometimes you’ve got to take life by the horns!
Time Spent with Friends
I was in the common room and we were watching Lord of the Rings trilogy. Everyone was so still, I really wanted to try and capture the moment. Plus, I really like my friends - in this one is Jack, Arj and Sam!

When Ever I see Him
I have not posted anything on Illustration Friday in a while. When I looked at this weeks topic and saw it was ‘Shy’, I browesed through my sketchbook and thought this drawing would be suitable.

The Roundhouse of Palimpsest
First appearing in the Thames Valley 3500 years ago, the Roundhouse was the main type of home up until the Roman period, where Small farmsteads were built along the edge of fields and clearings.

Watching TV in Jeremy’s Room
In this Drawing I am both intrigued and charmed by my friends because of how they behave in their casual environments. I feel by drawing figures within a context (e.g a room), a connection is made to a particular moment in time.

In the Summer Where We Spent Those Many Happy Days
I am working on a project at the moment where I have to draw certain things about myself. For example, some of the words are Name, Age, Nationality, Position in Family, Place of birth, etc. Thinking imaginatively about how the content is communicated, taking a lateral approach and avoiding obvious/literal descriptive imagery.
For this drawing, the word was ‘Place of Birth’. I have lived all my childhood life in Poole, a seaside town. It was when I was down Hamworthy park last week, I saw the public kids pool filled with the laughter of children and families playing in the sun. It made me think ‘this is what Poole is to me’; the idea of a free park made to entertain children and families, with a pool, Jungle Gym, grass areas and cute fencing for safety shows the town is great for families.
