ABADID 10...ARTWORK and comic club...

I'm not the best at going to new venues and meeting new people but when a friend (thanks, Catherine) sent me a link to a Girly Comic Club I thought 'oooo, that sounds good'. Tea was promised. I had been invited to a comic club before but it was in a pub which, although I occasionally have a bevy, is not my current scene. 

So, after attending the preview of ADF's December group exhibition GIFT 2, I hopped in a taxi to go meet new drawing buddies. I was armed with buns and biscuits. I didn't even feel nervous stepping out of the taxi and knocking on the door with the hand-drawn sign 'Girly Comic Club'.

It was really nice, got a cuppa, chatted, listened, drew and thought I might just be back here. I am a lot older which is inevitable when you're pushing 60. But as my pal Susie says we all need younger people in our lives because they keep us young. And I hope they'll get something back from me too.

So the doodle I started at the club is about sock rabbits. One of the comic club women had made a wonderfully dark fairisle version and I wondered how the usual stripey sock rabbits might get along with it. The current political climates of racism and all. 

So there's the doodle - now coloured and finished. As the drawing's in my sketchbook I didn't use alcohol markers in case of bleed through  - there's an image on the other side of the page. Used AquaMarkers, PITT artist pens and W&N watercolour markers. White gel pen differs from brand to brand - I am finding that Uniball Signo works much better than others on top of dry watercolour. 

And here's my own sockwabbit just for fun.

He then wager closely on these numbers and, in a couple of of} days, won nearly $325,000—more than $6million in right now's dollars—until the casino caught on and started switching wheels nightly. More lately, within the 1960s, while their fellow students have been studying or 카지노 바카라 protesting, a gaggle of Berkeley students have been reported to have pulled off a similar feat in Las Vegas. Nowadays, casinos routinely rotate their roulette wheels to frustrate long-run frequency bettors. All betting methods that rely on patterns, when employed on casino edge video games will end result, on average, within the player losing money. In follow, gamers employing betting methods might win, and will certainly win very large sums of money, but the losses will outweigh the wins.
