You may have noticed a new layout to the blog and more words finding their way onto my posts.
As well as the new layout of the blog, I’m now working completely digitally to create my drawings.
Today’s rushed sketch took 7 minutes from start to finish which explains how shoddy it is.
This is the view from my desk at work during my day job (or it would be if I didn’t have three 21inch monitors surrounding my workspace. It’s a picture of Reenaa who sits in the next veal-fattening pen along. I spend 37 and a half hours a week there- just over a day and a half. So why does it suck the life out of me?
It’s geeky, its technical, it’s specialist and it’s tedious. It pays my way but it corrodes my soul.
(“I didn’t realise that you wrote poetry… I didn’t realise you wrote such bloody awful poetry…”)
When Reenaa travels to her home in India, she has two pet elephants, her house has been attacked by troupes of baboons and she is something of a dignitary. When she returns to London she teaches classical Indian dance on top of her day job and yet I am the one who is more likely to nod off at my desk… maybe it’s just that I’ve been in my job for so long that I can deal with any problem that comes my way without having to think about it. It’s time for new challenges.
Oh! I designed myself a little logo too. My wife said it will make people think I’m in the Ku Klux Klan (who seem to have a faulty letter C on their typewriter). I disagree.what are your thoughts?
