Janice Duke Illustration

Recently I went on a short trip to the Lake District with a new sketchbook. It’s a beautiful place and I would like to go back and do some proper hill walking next time. This was just a jolly to have a look around and the highlight of my explorations was, of course, the Wildlife Park. Especially the bald eagle and eagle owls. Squeeee!

My new sketchbook is an A5 Artway Enviro Casebound, from a their range of recycled paper sketchbboks. It fits nicely in my handbag and is fantastic for pen and wash.

Poetry: The Thing We Die for Lack Of

😍 “MY EYES WERE BLIND, AND SOMETHING STARTED IN MY SOUL” (“Mis ojos estaban ciegos, y algo empezó en mi alma”). OH DARLINGS , THESE WORDS BY PABLO NERUDA WITH THE WORK BY KLEE, ARE IN MY OPINION PURE PLEASURE.

Paul Klee, Versunkene Landschaft, 1918

Wallace Stevens once famously said: “You can’t get the news from poems, but men die every day for lack of what is found there.”

It may be hard to argue the truthfulness of that statement when we consider the widespread unpopularity of reading poetry. A recent study finds that “since 2002, the share of poetry-readers has contracted by 45 percent—resulting in the steepest decline in participation in any literary genre.”

Poetry, it appears, is less popular than knitting, jazz, and dance. Perhaps that’s why we need the month of April to celebrate poetry, to help curb the decline and rekindle a comeback.

But Stevens wasn’t arguing that we die from the lack of reading poetry, but from the lack of what is found in there, the thing that inspires poets to put pen to paper, and artists to pick up their brushes, and musicians to…

Who are your main influences? Not so much who as what.  Whilst I love many artists – amongst them textile artist Jo Budd, painter Mark Rothko, and sculptor Peter Randall Page – my chief influences are natural forms and patterns, and words, especially poetry.

Moving On - SWAbove: ‘Moving On’ by Sandra Wyman.

Feminism: The misconceptions and The Truth

Feminism is still an unpopular word.

As a feminist, you’re seen as unnecessarily angry, aggressive, impulsive, unattractive and sometimes, even possessed by an evil spirit in some parts of Africa. In Nigeria, you’re labelled as a “Feminist witch.” Over time, Feminists have been depicted with a very popular image: an ugly woman with unshaved legs and armpits, who doesn’t wear deodorants and has awful hatred for men. Some believe Feminists are a group of mad women and brain washed men who want to annihilate men from the surface of the Earth. Others simply settle with the idea that it is a “Man-hating agenda.” A lot of people decide that if you must call yourself a feminist, then you must have nothing to do with men, hence, they criticize you harshly, if you have a husband, boyfriend or simply like to enjoy good sex with a man. Men who join in…
