silverAJ v3.1 - musings and art

When I'm teaching drawing, I often tell people not to rub out their lines or throw away old sketches, because you can learn a lot by looking back over your past mistakes, and use them to improve upon future work.

I'm afraid I haven't applied that philosophy to my own blog on here. I deleted or hid every old entry long ago, and I shake my head with a slightly amused smile at who I was when I was 10 years younger. I'm ever grateful not to have crashed and blundered through my cringeworthy late teens and early 20's in the days of Buzzfeed, Tumblr, Twitter, and everything online lasting absolutely forever.

But since it's here, lying dormant and empty, I thought I'd resurrect this blog for the time being as 'silverAJ v3.1' by posting some of the art I've been doing...

I'm still writing in mine after at least 10 years now...only the other day I was reading back over some of it and looking and what I'd come through and what sort of person I was then compared to now!

Wow!
Amazing that you're still writing in yours. I think some people are naturally suited to it, and some aren't, maybe. I'm definitely not! x
