Bloggers block and a few sketches of authors and other stuff from my sketchbook.

Sorry about the lack of posts at the moment, they don’t seem to be coming out in the usual way, this is partly a matter of inclination and partly due to being busy.



 Here are the author sketches, based on the photos at http://www.fantasticfiction.co.uk/ for any aspiring art critics. The sheets are A4 and part of my trying to get likenesses into small faces when I am out sketching this summer.

Not really sure if this is going to work, I think the main issue is about extending memory of faces that one isn’t familiar with related to the problems produced because people move.  
 This one was in The Churchill Tavern Ramsgate the other evening.
 And this one in Vinyl Head Ramsgate on Sunday

I guess no Thanet blog post is complete without reference to the latest airport news so here is the link http://www.riveroakinvestments.co.uk/riveroak-investments-save-manston-airport-manston-present-reliever-airport-case-prime-minister/#more-904

I have switched the blog to registered users only because of the amount of spam comments recently. 

I guess the main local news that interested me this week is that The Marlowe Academy having only had a new intake of 32 new pupils and the total number of pupils there now under 700 is to merge with Ellington and Hereson School.

Post a Comment

Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
