So, the time has come for a new website. It's a little bit more focused, I hope, and excitingly includes details of my new Etsy shop where you can buy prints of some of my work.
Thank you to everyone who's read the things I've posted here over the last few years - you're all very much appreciated! And please come and visit me at the new site: www.jenrussellsmith.co.uk

I know it's been rather quiet round here recently, but there is a (fairly) good reason. I'm in the throes of creating a sparkly new and hopefully less cobbled-together and more focused site for myself and it's taking up all my internet-time. Link to follow as soon as it's ready!

On Tuesday I found time to pop along to this month's Art Macabre drawing salon at Cass Art Islington. The theme was A Midsummer Night's Scream...
Either I mistake your shape and making quite;
Or else you are that shrewd and knavish sprite
Call'd Robin Goodfellow: are not you he
That frights the maidens of the villagery;
Skim milk, and sometimes labour in the quern
And bootless make the breathless housewife churn;
And sometime make the drink to bear no barm;
Mislead night-wanderers, laughing at their harm?
Those that Hobgoblin call you and sweet Puck,
You do their work, and they shall have good luck:
Are not you he?

If I'm not feeling very inspired, or just want to warm up my drawing fingers, I like to open up Pinterest and just draw the first few things that catch my eye. Hence this alarmed llama, terrifying clown-child, man vs chicken selection.
