stokes croft bristol

This is the street where I have a studio space at the moment. Lots of people came and talked to me during the few days I drew there. I love the way drawing breaks down social barriers. In a way I feel protected by the activity of drawing in the street. I lose my fear of people, it gives me a reason to be there and is a thing to generate interest. I really enjoyed doing it just because of that. I would never be able to talk to so many different people. They were all very interested in the drawing and told me about how they used to draw, wished they still did draw or many do still draw and really enjoy it.
