Back to the Book…

A couple of no-shows excepted we’re going great guns on the Book Draw. Some lovely artwork, both from well known names and well liked students is coming in and will be available for people to use on the day… This, above, may well be the centrepiece – an A1 image with fish printed on it from all of the people who’ve sent in artwork and a couple of others besides with a couple more to come… It’ll have a sheet of acetate over it that can have fish drawn on by the participants of the book draw itself. Should look interesting. Not 100% sure if it’ll work or not, but am intrigued to know how it’ll turn out on the day.

Apart from that events over the past couple of days have left me wondering if the entire education system in this country is fundamentally broken from cradle to grave. Very demoralising and two people said to me the same thing – be part of the solution… But the problem is that there is no money, courses and tutors are being cut without consideration, teaching power is being taken away from teachers and so on… I don’t know how I can be part of the solution to that. Tricksome and defeating, at the moment anyhow.

Still, book draw on Sat and hopefully it’ll be fun. Hope, hope, hope…
