I’m still getting to grips with this WordPress lark. I’ve recently found out that you can see what searches people have entered to find your site. The two best have been:
funny giraffe face picture
fat and funny dogs
I think I’m in the wrong business! If I just added LOLcatz pics to a post, I’d get more hits than advertising on Twitter! 🙂 The particularly interesting one is ‘fat and funny dogs’. I dont actually have a picture of a dog on the blog at all! The giraffe I do have, however, and so it’s my own fault.
I also realise that I’ve been neglecting your artistic appreciation skills. This came about when my girlfriend (an English Teacher) has asked me to once again participate in a scheme of work she’s running for her kids. We did it a couple of years back, and it was a hit, so we’re doing it again. Basically, it’s based on comic books. The kids learn about language through comics and their overiding project is to create a hero of their own. The best design in each class is voted for by their peers, and the best of three classes is decided by the Headmistress. And here’s where I come in. The winners of each class and the overall winner gets their heroes drawn my yours-truly in true comic book style.
I always have masses of fun with this. Interpreting the kids’ designs is a challenge at times, but it pays off. We also did the same thing with David Almond’s Skellig where the kids drew Skellig and I redrew the winner. That one was particularly tough. I tried to find these old drawings in my folders, then remembered that the kids had them, of course. DOH! And so I thought I’d share some of my other drawings with you to break the monotony of this blog a bit. So, here we go!
As Neil Buchanan (the only celebrity to follow me on Twitter) would say…this is an Art Attack!
Thanks for reading.
