House Print No.2, £15 by Simon Smith on Folksy

"In January 2012 I decided that it was time for a new drawing/art-making challenge.

I’d become very aware of just how little we knew of our local area and I was also spending a lot of time indoors stuck behind a desk, so I was keen to find a reason to get out and about a bit more.

So I hit upon the idea of wandering around the locality to find a different house in the area to draw each week, starting with a house numbered 1, and working all the way through to a number 52 in the final week of December 2012.

Each drawing would then be made up into a lino print, with the addition of some text taken from the lyrics of a song on my ipod shuffle, which I’d been listening to as I’d made the original sketches.”

Congratulations to all those clever people who received the A level results they were hoping for today!
