THE WEB . . . TEXTING . . . How did we ever manage before they came along? Probably
we got together with friends and family more often, as we have this afternoon at
Barbara’s mum’s birthday tea. It will be a while before we all meet up again but
until then at least I can keep up with almost everyone’s movements on Facebook.
I’ve eased off drawing people for a while, partly because, with the power of Google
to search out far flung information I was wary about telling stories about family
and friends in my diary but as so many of them keep a Facebook page, they’re evidently
comfortable with a web presence already.
I’d like to do a lot more drawings of people. I think doing historical comic strips
for my last book has set me off wanting to get back to drawing characters and incorporating
them into scenes; for instance when I was drawing from the café in Ossett the other
day, I realised that there was no point in drawing a bustling market and missing
out the people!
