Walk Three Hundred and Thirty-Seven – Hugo skateboarding

After spending almost the entire day hunched over the computer catching up with work whilst Robin did all the Xavier errands, I walked up to the bluebell wood in the evening, in the small window between doing work for clients and making supper for the family and going out for my last life drawing session. My second son Hugo had gone out earlier to practice his skateboarding and these little stick men were my effort to capture him. All these drawings, trying to capture the their essence before they change. I’ll now always remember this moment – Hugo in typical Hugo fashion still wearing his school uniform jacket, tie and trousers, not worrying about the possibility of rips or tears.

These are fantastic - so expressive. What a great memory they will be.

That's what I love about drawing, they brand those memories onto the brain! Great little figures, it's amazing how different all your drawings are even when you go to the same places.
