Savoy Brown CafÃ© 143 High Street.
Thanks to Kate (from Savoy Brown) for the use of the space!
I had a lovely conversation with Christine, a friend. After I’d been chatting about Thousand Sketches for a while she reflected back I had a fascination with form.
She is right, I had never seen that so sharply. I am more fascinated by the form than the content. I like the shape of a sonnet. I’ll sketch it now!
The canvas is a form. The blog is a form. The limited edition print is a form. (for all the artificial limitation in the digital age) .
Form is a wondrous thing. The medium is the message.

I have seen his pots, but seeing his works on paper draws me in closer. I saw one at the Arthouse recently and made a note to look online for more.
John Crawford, Hector Pottery.
I would like to make a trip to the coast just to see these. The motivation is stuff. My interest in the physical. I want to see how people make prints and works on paper to see how I might translate (now there is a word!) my “templates”. There is another word.
(In ship building there is a early version before they make the mold, what do they call that? It might even be a sort of negative… hmmm my digital files are like negatives. )
Anyway I like his work, the content and the form.
An image follows.

I can think “arm move” and it does. There are people who have lost or never had that ability. I have lost the ability to sketch on my screen like I used to. Temporarily, frustrating rather than a tragedy. I have also possibly lost the last few sketches – and the originals of a few more, I’ll hear tomorrow.
Firstly more about this sketch which was done with a pen on a digital pad, and then some reflections on evolution.

Born digital & made physical…
Below are some photos of the studio, stuff being made. But that is not all, I have some canvasses being put on stretchers by Don, and some images being printed by Jeff
I am devising more physical forms. Making stuff is great. Will post pix when the items are done. Here are photos of the printing I do myself:
Savoy Brown is a lovely place for a gathering of friends & to put up art. Thanks to everyone who came, and for such warm comments about the work. One I appreciated, and several people made it, was that there has been development in my work. I think so, but it is hard to know.
In addition to the computer slide shows, plenty of prints on the wall and my folders on view I had three 1.2 meter wide canvasses on the wall:
They were hot off the press today and looked stunning. They scaled up really well.
I am pleased that I took a few orders.
If anyone has some photos from the night I’d love a copy!
Thanks again Simon, Sara, Bona, Kate for all the good work.
#500 Half Way
11″ x 8.5″ image on 13″ x 19″ archival matte paper.
It was not really half way on the walk, but it is a nice title for the sketch anyway. And it is half way through the 1000 – I may be a bit behind, but pleased to have made it thus far.
On a recent walking trip with friends from to Sumner to Taylors Mistake and back.
I have been working on the details!
The information about buying prints is more readable! There is a lot of info, but I hope it is more accessible. If it is not clear let me know what you think I should say!

A sketch of Ralph Hotere, one of my favourite artists. I was at a Papergraphica the day I did this, learnt about their amazing work place, looked at a bunch wonderful work including Hotere lithographs.
Got immersed & that prompted me to sketch from a video I had out.
#0463 Ralph Hotere
I thought I’d said more here about Hotere at the time, but, no. I will add more. Firstly some images. And links.
