The Thursday Thinktank

A bit of loose unpredmeditated brush-drawing in my sketchbook ... well, strictly speaking was using a Faber-Castell PITT brush pen... not quite the same thing, but less messy than brush and ink, and I don't have to wait for it to dry. Like the result... just hoping it doesn't look too much like Conrad Botes drawings -- I have been accused of that, but fuck that.
Long weekend coming up... maybe time to dust off the paintbrushes and tackle those FOUR virginal white primed canvases which are lurking in the studio waiting for me to give them some attention. (hmm.. does anything virginal actually "lurk"?)
Ok, ya lazy bastich -- back to work!!

PS: Found this quote I wrote in earlier pages of this sketchbook:

"... for most people Nature has been replaced by the culture of congestion: of cities and mass media. We are crammed like battery hens with stimuli, and what seems significant is not the quality or meaning of the messages, but their excess."
Robert Hughes, The Shock Of The New

Damn right -- Bob knows what he's talkin' about.
