Some of my friends HATE Christmas. Sorry those friends.
This year I've turned sketches into Christmas cards. These local ones I managed, in a rare burst of organisation, to scan and print for the neighbours.
Other cards I just drew straight onto those cheap blank cards from 'The Works'. These ones I posted to old school friends associated in some way with the locations drawn.
And as I don't actually HAVE that many friends, I've also been giving sketches direct to strangers who I think are good. Like the folk who organised York Zine Fair (above).
And as I'm more confident on time alone alone than during actual interaction with people, where I fluster and mumble and confuse, I have also been drawing inanimate buildings and handing the cards to the people who work there. Above is the Crescent Community Venue, where the York Zine Fair was.
The following are Yorkshire ones, courtesy of train changes.
These two following were given direct to the people / house drawn. In Berwick.
Whereas the York station and other Yorkshire ones went in the post to the old schoolfriends.
I ran out of cards : these 2 sketches went on envelopes.
And the Durham ones : a couple went direct from hand to hand (but you HAVE to envelope em first), a couple more waiting for me to post.
Today, drawing in Newcastle with Bob and Maria (meeting 10am at central station if u fancy), and it's the last day for 2nd class posting!
