#LifeDrawingLive

Spent a happy few hours colouring in this drawing, inspired by Sunday evening`s #LifeDrawingLive – the BBC art show presented by Joe Lycett.

‘The Mogg Conga’: Silly-Savvy Art

A piece inspired by the idiocy of Jacob Rees-Mogg, when he insisted MPs travel from far and wide, to vote at the House of Commons – in the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic! As the lesser mortals queue to vote, Rees-Mogg peers down at them, sharing out the virus to promote the Tory version ofContinue reading “‘The Mogg Conga’: Silly-Savvy Art”
