Wreck this Journal

I was given this sketchbook journal called : Wreck this journal.

It's supposed to encourage your creative skills however I find it to difficult to remain committed to  all the rules laid down,

as my sketchbook’s starting point in life begins  by being dumped into my rucksack and   inevitably ends up being abused by  packed lunches, flask tea spillages , weather attacks, drawing, painting , tearing  and polishing  the life out of it.

Pole Dancing sketches


Last weekend, I attended a session of the  Free Pole Fitness Taster Class at Fierce Pole Fitness in Dublin.

As I had arrived early, Sarah (the Owner)  kindly let me in to watch the girls practise their breathtaking  routines for a competition which will be coming up this September 2015.

During the  flexibility session, the difficulty was capturing the essence of movement and  the dynamic of of each pose the body takes on counterpointed by the rigidity of the pole as they  become united as one.

Drawing the session was great  fun,   however  the next day my abs suffered the consequences of being hunched up for  far too long in front of the unyielding rigidity  of the almighty computer screen.
