Pierre Abraham Rochat's illustrations on my blogpost yesterday (here) reminded me of classic travel posters of the past. And it also reminded me of some 'travel' posters I created a few years ago as prints. As a bonus I thought I'd share them with you.

Just recently, as another lockdown arts project (see my previous models/sculptures here, here and here), I've been experimenting with sculpting in polymer clay. And here's my first effort, standing on my office shelf. It's a disco geriatric!
It began life (as these things so often do) with me looking back through old sketchbooks and finding a picture I once drew of a disco-dancing grandad proudly proclaiming to his family, 'I've still got it, son!' while dressed in his 1970s finery (my #Inktober day 25 'Buddy' doodle (see here) was inspired by this guy too - it's how he looked back in the 70s!).
Because this was my first attempt, I didn't want to spend too much money so, instead of investing in an expensive (but excellent quality) branded polymer clay like Fimo or DAS or Sculpey, I sourced a cheap alternative on Amazon that cost half the price.
