I can draw Dennis the Menace. British, natch.
anything else, though, and i'm hopeless :(
Do you want to hear it? Well I'm going to tell it. When I was about 7, we were told in primary school to draw self-portraits. Thinking back, I'm not really sure about the logistics of the whole affair because we weren't told in advance to bring in photos of ourselves, and there certainly weren't enough mirrors for all of us, but WHATEVER. Anyway, before we started our teacher told us not to draw circular faces and circular eyes, but *oval* faces and *almond-shaped* eyes. So guess what my friend did? He drew a circular face and circular eyes! Then when his mum was taking me home, she asked us about the pictures, and I said "Our teacher told us not to draw circular faces or circular eyes, and he (struggling to breathe from laughing now)... drew... a circular face... and... circular eyes!" She told me I was mean and I sulked for the rest of the journey. END OF STORY!
I liked that story! Please tell me more!
exciting events like that are fairly sparse in my life :(
my self-portrait was well good.
at a push, balls
cash from my bank account.
I was in that "elephant bagel" place in edinburgh the other day. Theyve got pictures of elephants all over the walls, drawn by the patrons. Most of the time its intentionally crude drawings by people pretending to be twee, i.e bad drawing with "John, 27 3/4, Leeds" written on it.
But mine was different. I drew a the head of a dog that was dressed up as an Elephant. It had ears and a trunk tied by string to its head, and a solitary tear rolling down its cheek.
It was entitled "a foreign body" and i made my friend yassen (who wasnt there) give it 7/10 , and describe it as "an mind blowing exploration of self indentity, isolation, and longing".
It would'ave been a genuinly brilliant piece of art if I was any good at drawing.
for some reason that is nothing to do with the staff or the food or the location or the clientele. So i'll probably never see your picture, but i'm sure it was good.
An elephant in a top hat balancing on a tortoise's back while a little monkey orchestrates the whole extravaganza.
And also cocks.
a dog, but only when I do it like that story about the man with no arms who got chased into a puddle by bees.
for GCSE art, but I haven't really drawn since then, and have somewhat lost the knack.
