John's fireball

Recent Artwork

I've been doing a lot more drawing recently, since I've been going to a life drawing class on Thursdays, which has inspired me and shown me how much you can improve by practising.

It's strange for me, because I usually just draw people (mostly faces) except for when I was at school and had set themes or assignments to do, which pushed me out of my comfort zone. At the moment I'm trying to get out more and draw interesting things, both to improve my abilities and also just to do something and get so fresh air. Because of the fatigue and malaise my ME gives me it's very hard to seize the day. Even when I am physically capable of going out I sometimes want to crawl up into a ball and moan "I don't feel well." But of course this is no good for me psychologically, so what I want to do is less mooching (random internet surfing and TV watching) and more arts and crafts work, alongside more productive resting (lying down in a darkened room meditating). I sometimes forget that TV watching and surfing the internet are not energy neutral and get stuck on them too long, instead of pacing myself properly.

I'll post some life drawings soon, but here's some other stuff I've been working on.
