Battle of Orgreave

with 2 comments

This is a drawing of the Battle of Orgreave, on 29th May 1984, during the miners’ strike in the UK. I’m not sure that I really understood what was going on at the time. But, y’know, Thatcher was obviously a heinous cunt. And whatever I am doing on the day she dies, I will stop doing it, go to a bar, and celebrate.

The drawing is of a paused moment is this clip of news footage. I am very much enjoying drawing with the iPad nowadays. The more I try, the more it can do. Brushes is a pretty simple app, but the more you play around, the better things get, I think.

More finger painting here.

  2. I’d like to celebrate a day when all the workers of the world who don’t make a lot of money for doing the hardest jobs are treated with the respect they deserve.
