Lisa, Will, John and Matt

We all know Cumberland Lifer Lisa Pasquil headed off to Bristol in the UK where hubby Dave works in Aerospace. I was just checking the blog of her life drawing group, Bristol Life Drawing, (on our links or see below) and the blogmiester Will Stevens has an interesting and insightful item on the John Berger episode of 'Todays Nude'. Actually, Will has lots of interesting items, it's a blog worth checking into occasionally. He, and presumably Lisa, have also had visits from a talented group of animation industry artists working in Bristol with Aaardman Animations, the creators of Wallace and Grommit. One of them is a Matt Jones, who is well known in the animation blogosphere and superb drawer-er; I've often visited his blog to check out his drawings. Links below:

Great to hear from you Clive and Thanks for the link. I like your description of me as blogmeister. It kind of makes me feel like Eric von Stroheim!
Matts got some fantastic stuff on his blog concerning an illustrator called Ronald Searle and his sketchbook stuff is really inspirational. Well worth looking at
Have a good term and keep up the good work.
