A while ago I joined in with Maidenhead’s wonderful Art On The Street open air art festival. A couple of times with students and once on my own, displaying and selling prints of my artwork. As part of it I joined in with a competition to design the cover of the free magazine to be given out on the day.
It started as a simple sketch in my Moleskine pad, itself based on an object that I’d seen in a museum years back. I’d tried to draw the object as a robot years beforehand but was unsatisfied with the result. This time I was happy with the sketch and played around with it on phone and on Surface Pro.
In the end I came second, but it didn’t matter. I made a painting that I still love, four years later, and that makes me happy enough.
