My Work Wall, Roger Duvoisin and Drawing from Life

Hello there! Here is a list five things that have inspired me or taught me something new over the past month. Hopefully these little nuggets will inspire you too.

1. A blog post about one of my favourite illustrators: Roger Duvoisin

2. People I like to follow on instagram: Mique_moriuchi. Her Ninja Mum series of drawings about being a mum are so funny- and true to life.

3. I started the hashtag #myworkwall ages ago for pictures of people’s work spaces, and all the stuff they have pinned to their walls: postcards, shopping lists, rough drawings... I am nosy! But I sort of lost interest when I noticed there were barely any pictures of work walls any more, it took on a life of its own. I see it has 5800 contributions now, amazing! What do you have on your work wall? Let’s see if we can populate the feed with actual work walls again! Don’t forget to use the hashtag #myworkwall and tag me in too. I am helenstephenslion over there.

4. Did you hear the latest Louis Theroux chat on the Adam Buxton Podcast? The chat about the writing process is great.

5. I stumbled across this gem of video about the value of drawing from life by Chloe Regan, Rachel Gannon and Fumie Kamijo.
