Last bit of art submitted June 22nd.  That was quite a break.

Will try to pick up where I left off, though might take me a few days to sort things out...

Keep meaning to update this bit but never get around to it. Very much a hobbyist, the fun for me is in making the drawings rather than the satisfaction of producing something beautiful that I enjoy looking at. In fact looking at my pictures tends to cause me some discomfort and I'm self-critical to a pathological degree. Getting better every day though.

I didn't own a tablet until October last year, but now I can't stand being apart from the thing though we do sleep in separate beds. I pretty much exclusively draw people, because its fun and I think they're interesting. I should probably have a long term goal, but nothing springs to mind right now. I can always edit this when inspiration hits.

Oh, and I live in Kent, famous for its hop growing. They grow in fields. Hence: Hopfield. It's also the name of a suite in a nursing home I used to frequent. Writing this is HARD.

I thought of something to add: THANK YOU FOR THE FAVOURITE!!! I'll try to get to your gallery and nose around but I'm usually a bit behind schedule on this front. It's also worth adding that I might not thank you because I LOOKED AT YOUR GALLERY AND/OR FAVOURITES AND WAS COMPLETELY FREAKED OUT. I do not wish to offend or appear ungrateful, but sometimes I think there are people around here with whom communication is best nipped in the bud. I'm a liberal minded person, but an entire page of favourites depicting violence toward women? Please.

Thank you! No art yesterday I'm afraid, though did read a significant chunk of a big book on drawing that was a gift so I'm counting that as creative work :P
