John Buchan once wrote that journeys made in haste by night were the epitome of adventure and I've taken great comfort in that every time I have found myself on the road with the sun slipping away and hours of travel ahead. This month there will be much adventure and many late night journeys as I embark on my Draw Tour, a trip around the Cass Art Stores of the UK. I'll be giving a few workshops and, on request, scrawling on books, but mostly Im out for adventure. I'll be meeting new cities, new people and drawing everything I see on the way. As much as possible I'm hoping to encourage other people to draw too: to initiate the un-confident in the ways of the sketchbook and join new friends in wearing blunt their pencils in diligent scribbling.
I would love some company along the way, so if you are in London, Liverpool, Glasgow or Bristol over the next month come and join me. Details are on the front page of this site and I'll be keeping a drawn diary on here as I go...
Teaching, drawing, writing and painting.
