    Nader on the rooftop of his home in Jordan, with a great view over the capital city, Amman. It was a pleasure to chat with him about pandemic life, via Zoom, for my #NickDrawsNationals art project. It was too hot for Nader, and his laptop, to sit out in the sun for more than 30 minutes, so unusually for me, I drew from a video still while we chatted back indoors where it was cooler. I enjoyed drawing the clustered buildings and trees on the city hillside, the refraction in Nader’s glasses, the rusty railing, and the sharp shadows of the midday sun. #nickdrawsneighbours #drawing #portrait #portraitdrawing #portraiture #birodrawing #ballpointpen #ballpointpenart #ballpoint #neighbours #sketching #artinlockdown #artinisolation #isolationart #NickDrawsNationals (at Portslade, West Sussex, United Kingdom) https://www.instagram.com/p/COlfbX6H7W7/?igshid=1vygz17pbg8cm

    Before this whole mess, before I became spirit, I constantly had this bizarre hunger, my eyes would well up with black tears and I could feel how hot they were as they rolled down my cheeks and from my mouth, the taste of them was sickening as if a mix between blood and something not human at all, but when I smelled the blood of someone, my hunger rose no matter how much I tried to push through it, my hunger would consume me and I’d feast, and like the monster I am, i showed no mercy as I fed upon the corpse of my freind

    On Tuesday morning/sunset I drew Trinh in Vietnam, via Zoom, for my #NickDrawsNationals pandemic art project. Trinh is a motorcycle mechanic, and we were put in touch by a guy I studied web design with years ago, who now lives in Vietnam, teaching English. Trinh services his moped – the cheap, easy transport that most people in the country use. Trinh has been enjoying doing bespoke and custom bike rebuilds lately, inspired by classic Italian Vespas and Lambrettas. He joined me from a cafe as the sun was setting – having just smoked a large traditional bamboo bong – so he was quite mellow. I had hoped to draw him at his workshop, or in a public garden, but wifi is scarce and lockdown restrictions are getting tighter. We were also under pressure to do the session before he shaves off his fine wide waxed moustache: he’s job-hunting and wants to take a “respectable” photo of himself for his CV. As a bit of a hipster, he sometimes wears tweeds, but it’s too hot for that now. He told me about the differences between Hanoi’s classical French colonial architecture in the north, and the hectic modern life of Ho Chi Minh City in the south (this was borne out by my unsuccessful requests to draw another Viet friend who moved back there from Brighton – she’s too busy earning money and partying!). I asked about the Vietnam war and its lasting effects on the country. Trinh’s grandfather was a Viet soldier, fighting the Americans, but died after wartime surgery went wrong. There are still old bomb casings littering the country, which many Viet people keep as souvenirs, despite government safety concerns. On the whole, Vietnam is a happy carefree “paradise”, and people look after each other. Trinh said if there’s a robbery, the victim’s friends and family will often get together to help catch the thief (who may even have to seek police protection). He hasn’t travelled beyond Vietnam, but thinks it’s important to learn and focus on what your own nation has to offer. #nickdrawsneighbours #drawing #portrait #portraitdrawing #portraiture #birodrawing #ballpointpen #ballpointpenart #ballpoint #neighbours #sketching #artinlockdown #artinisolation #isolationart #NickDrawsNationals (at Portslade, West Sussex, United Kingdom) https://www.instagram.com/p/COlLW90nyY6/?igshid=5jqnogka6eyz

    The hands can be so expressive. Especially in dance and sign language which look so beautiful. If I practice enough maybe I can put that expression to paper eventually. #draw #drawing #sketching #sketch #sketchbook https://www.instagram.com/p/COlKrv5n-da/?igshid=sfdq9358zt5o

    Moving fast is surely not the same as going somewhere. Bliss though when I run to catch up with the rapid current of time and manage to hang my full weight into the moment.

    Some quick improv sketches by J.J.

    Some art I made during math class, the sticky-note shark was Curtis' doing [I only own Rome and Coriander, Penta belongs to @sunriseships, they're supposed to be cheering on HEX but I lost steam for the background-]

    #fun fact about my art #all of my sketching is done on paper and is incredibly messy most of the time #I fix it all up digitally with the ones I want to #my sketchbooks are always just scribbles to anyone but me-
