Sky Arts promo from a telly!
Photo - thanks Chris Golya
I applied for the competition in order to experience the application process so that I could empathise with students who may be going through various application processes themselves - so I could advise. I am a Senior Lecturer and Course Leader at Portsmouth University - for Media Studies and Entertainment Technology. I never believed in a million years that my submission drawing would be selected. The on-line competition form asked for a self portrait - so this is the drawing I uploaded:
'My Menopausal Self' 2013
Compressed charcoal on Fabriano paper.

Here's one I made earlier...
Jonty Stern (Big Brother contestant 2007) Museum speaker.

So please do keep coming back to this blog once the Sky Arts series starts to be shown.. and I will try and share the absolute terror and pressure of participating in the programme!! (only joking!!! - actually it was pretty tense!)
