The trip to Compton Verney

03 October 2008 The first trip arranged by my university was to the gallery of Compton Verney. The great mansion turned gallery was host to numerous of interesting exhibits. the main exhibits showing this day (and the start of our assignment), were works by Jack B. Yeats and Oskar Kokoschka. While Kokoschka's work involved a kind of life n' times during the 2 world wars, Yeats work, done a little before that time, focused on the many aspects of the circus and the performers. It was quite an insperational trip and its givin me a few ideas, plus a bit of motivation for researching circuses.
The sketch shown here is a doodle that I was doing on the way back home. Its supposed to be a jester's wand, since I was thinking on the lines of circus clowns.


I finally got this thing up n' running ! ! !

Nor sleet, nor rain, nor dodgy Internet connection or shabby excuses for personal processors could stop me from making this blog. It all begins here, providing that I can keep it working...
