Only nine you say? But surely you do two classes in a day? True, I usually do. But on Monday in Bournville I had an interestingly different morning spent drawing a goat.
The school's badge features a goat which they've included in such things as a stained glass window, and so the thought was that I could draw a goat in various positions, in illustrations that could be used in promotional and educational materials. They got some pretty good value for money from me, I must say. Half a dozen illustrations rattled off in the library in the course of a morning and coloured at home that night for no extra charge. I do hope no other schools are reading this, cos I can't promise to offer such a bonus service for everyone who asks.
The celebrities the kids in my classes chose for my now-legendary "treads on a worm" demonstration strip were Meghan Trainor, Olly Murs, Simon Cowell (of course, twice), Michael Jackson, Taylor Swift (twice), Dec out of Ant & Dec, and most original of the week Martin Luther King.
