100522 EDM in EDiM 20 Draw something DAD
It is totally appropriate for me to visit my dad’s shed on a Saturday afternoon – since hanging out here is one of the lovely memories I have from childhood. Quite a few changes as the shed has been upgraded since my dads retirement.. but some things are the same.
BTW the models that I made as an architecture student and tried to throw out are all decaying gracefully(???) in the top of the shed- I have faintly indicated 3 of them in this sketch.

Last nights offering…
100521 EDM in EDiM 23 Draw your foot

I am going to be offline for a few days – so here is ‘Sunday’s’ challenge.
Way too tired to do this … I am obviously reacting against all those simple object pages and going for intense, busy, chocka block spreads at the moment.(symbolic of my mental state perhaps!?!)
On the right is a sketch from one of my more interesting books (probably in my top 10 interesting)


This is part of the Everyday in May challenge – drawing something every day
in May. A group of us thought it would be fun to do a Everyday Matters (EDM)
challenge each day using EDM 1-31. The list is here

    Lovely drawing! Your really managed to catch the atmosphere of it (or at least I think so as I never saw it IRL :D)

    Gorgeous sketches, all of them! But what I really want to know is why your dad called you "Sonny-Jim?" Wish I was decaying gracefully. Alas, I am going kicking and screaming and clawing and losing traction fast!

    Like your sketches of course, but enjoyed todays of the workbench and your reference to models from architecture school. Reminded me of a similar time. I'm older though. My school models finally decayed to the point holding on to them could no longer be defended.

    Great drawing! I would love to do something like this but am too intimidated. It seems easy but I know it's not. Patsy from
