I like to draw from time to time and always enjoyed art at school (albeit I wasn’t great at it). So regardless of the fact that we are all locked in and trying to keep ourselves occupied, we enjoyed this activity a long time before.
The weekend just gone my youngest son and I took a photo each and attempted to draw it, the results below.
The Pirate In me
95% of the workforce in the company I work for are now working remotely. With around 16,000 employees worldwide our company were quick to react to upgrading it’s remote networking capability. As a team tool for communicating, we use Microsoft Teams. For those not familiar it’s a collaboration tool which allows internal teams to share documents, online chat and video/voice conferencing.
I have a daily call with my team just to make sure we are all OK firstly mentally, comfortable with workloads and what we want to achieve; quite light touch. But once a week each team member picks a dress theme. Last week I got to pick the theme, which was Pirates. The following photo is of me attempting to be a pirate, and after that is a drawing by my youngest.
Brothers in arms
During this lock down period we are still OK to go out as a family, albeit no more then once in a day, unless it is essential. So last week we ventured out at a nearby quiet country lane and I took this picture of the boys, and then attempted to draw it!
Have you attempted any drawings in lockdown?
