  1. I quite enjoy how the characters extend against a field of stars, how those stars appear in the background rather than the sky. A familial setting that contains a shared aspect, a perspective where viewers may ponder on the ambiguities of relative relations.
    My sketches likely mirror just such ambiguity. Looking forward to sharing my own pictures in a blog entry. 🙂
    Of a dreamship home from sea — wonderful title

    1. ‘Familial setting..’ I never thought of it like that until you said it, but I like that, that’s interesting, makes me smile… I find it fascinating what people can see in art/doodles, it’s so personal and individual. I just get lost in what I’m doing and don’t even notice sometimes, what someone then points out.
      I’m looking forward to seeing your pictures, I like your description, I love seeing people’s art.
      The title – yeah I just loved that line when I saw it and once I’d done this it just jumped out at me.
      Thanks for taking the time to look at my stuff and to bother putting such thoughtful comments, I always get so much out of what you say and I appreciate that a lot.
      Be looking out for your pictures. Thanks again for your words.

      1. Very glad that you liked my reactions to your sketch. I think technique is as individual as fingerprints, particularly when they speak to the stuff of dreams and imagination — a realm where you escape from the artificial bounds dictated by the exigencies of the moment. Here is a thought that originated with Arthur C. Clarke, but that is often misattributed. I happened upon it circa 1974:

        “That perhaps is why people are so ready with the charge of ‘escape’. I never fully understood it till my friend Professor Tolkien asked me the very simple question, ‘What class of men would you expect to be most preoccupied with, and most hostile to, the idea of escape?’ and gave the obvious answer: jailers. The charge of Fascism is, to be sure, mere mud-flinging. Fascists, as well as Communists, are jailers; both would assure us that the proper study of prisoners is prison. But there is perhaps this truth behind it: that those who brood much on the remote past or future, or stare long at the night sky, are less likely than others to be ardent or orthodox partisans.

        1. Interesting! Thanks for the quote, I love interesting quotes, lot of food for thought here!! Especially in these insane times of such increased and blatant censorship. You always give me much to think about and other things to look into, I like that, so thanks again for making such interesting comments.

          1. Thanks so much for the encouragement, I have been considering how to go about creating a separate blog for my sketches, how (or whether) to annotate them.
            These “insane times” bring out the jailer mentality in those who yearn for law, order, and endless censorship — to pacify, to liquidate, to effect extraordinary rendition.

            1. That’s a nice idea, I’ve thought about it myself, I’ve even ‘started’ two other blogs but haven’t got round to realizing them, I’m just not good at fannying around with WordPress, so they sit there and I just use the one blog for everything.
              Yes! And boy are we seeing that mentality in full flow right now! Strange times!!
              Thanks again for commenting and I really look forward to your sketches!!

            2. I have a Christmas wish — a scanner to digitize the sketches into image files. 🙂
              Am thinking about providing annotations and then encouraging comments in some fashion.
              These strange times have already altered the collective consciousness, haven’t they? This entire country is at a very-high Covid alert level — the only exceptions are Vermont, Maine, and Hawaii.
              Thanks again for your kind encouragement 🙂

            3. I have a scanner but had it a while, it still works but the newer computer won’t work with it!! They want you to buy a new one,’built to fail’ as they say, infuriating!! I hope you manage to get one and get your drawings out, it’s worth doing it really is.
              They really have haven’t they?? This is such a strange world now, crazy things happening, every day it gets crazier….I struggled to comprehend much of life before, but now?? Who knows where it will all end??
              You are so welcome, I love your comments, you have such intelligent, ponderous things to say and always set me thinking.

            4. My son Alan is a proper wizard at finding a proper match of software, firmware, and hardware — that helps enormously. 🙂
              Solastalgia is one of those words that speak to this strange world you describe and recognize. Here is what an image search yields:

              https://www.google.com/search?q=Solastalgia&sxsrf=ALeKk03xqdU2i7CAjiPQ0C8xu6x4FS7Q2g:1606962337189&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjJy5ma4bDtAhUQwlkKHaZYBOEQ_AUoAnoECAkQBA&biw=2048&bih=1073

              And here is my take on solastalgia from 28 May 2019. Iconoclasm is something that I have cherished for more than fifty ponderous years now. Thanks so much for listening and for thinking
