On the banks of the Severn…

A change from drawing and cartoons. I’m close to the Severn, one of the most beautiful rivers in the country. The Severn bore is one of the most spectacular natural events on the river, a tidal wave that comes down river and is large enough for surfers to try their hand. No, it’s not huge, but it is well worth a trip to see.But this shot is when the river is at it’s quietest, on a September evening and close to the wider areas of river; the bore happens a little further up river and at specific times – you’ll need to look them up! This is a photograph of one of the Purton Hulks, one of a number of small ships beached on the here on the river to preserve the banks from the natural erosion of the water movement. They are close to the village of Purton which is a super tranquil place for a walk in the English countyside, and with the added bonus of the river nearby. I hung around for the sun to be at the right place for this shot, it was worth the wait for me, I hope it was for you.

What’s different about Tuesday?

One post 2 days ago gets an audience spike of over a 100 in a day, I thought for a moment that I might have the right formula here so that I could build on that and get loads of unsuspecting people to look at my handywork. Today back to what might be called normal, five viewings and all those were from France. I’ll need to do more, or find out what was different about Tuesday.Image

While I’m at it here’s my new old drawing that I am using on Twitter, you can find me by searching for pauldraws, but only if it’s Tuesday it would seem.

The Employment Jungle in full…

The completed picture. I like drawing jungles, lots of scribbling and the chance for silly little details like bird with fish. This was commissioned so it does have a serious purpose.A good week on the blog and a massive spike in traffic after the publication of the last one and putting it out into the twitter sphere.Helped by daughter’s connections too. So for all you who’ve been looking from all over the world, thanks for dropping into my jungle.

The Employment Jungle

This is again part of a bigger drawing but here we can see what it might be about.Have a guess what the chap in the background might be saying. I’ll apologise now if it’s not quite as exciting as you might have thought, but then it is about employment and social media.The final will be published by the end of the week and then perhaps we’ll have a change from these busy cartoons. I might have a spell of simple. If you have been looking, thanks for dropping in. Feel free to comment on what you see, or if you have a subject I’m happy to look at it for you.
