thursday night was the 1st birthday party of Heavy Pencil at the ICA. fun seemed to be had by all and it was great to see so many people drawing. drawing in any kind of public space/arena can pose some problems. personally i find the experience is nerve racking and slightly alien during, but beneficial afterwards. i think its hard to not try and draw to show off, which can be the worse kind of drawing, or to fall into a default mode but avoiding both of these issues in this situation is hard but a good challenge. i like what heavy pencil are doing and its good to think about drawing as a more open activity. thanks to all involved and the great live music from django django

when i did my residency at Island fold i collaborated on a quick series of drawings with the talented Luke Ramsey. A lot of work was made during my time there and i had forgotten about these drawings until now. Seeing them take the from of a zine, lovingly put together by Island fold, is a real pleasure and a reminder that distance from your work is a good thing . You can buy a copy on their site .While your there i recommend looking around at their other publications. lots of great work by great artists and any purchase supports the generous spirit of Island fold.
