In the penultimate week of the course Steven emphasised the importance of keeping a sketchbook. He challenged us to fill a page daily and I don’t doubt that such discipline is the key to his artistic success. As an exercise he introduced the memory sketch: producing a character from the details we remember about a recently encountered real individual. I chose a chubby girl I observed in a London park. She was a rolling cliché; speeding on a scooter seemingly oblivious to the world as she greedily licked at her ice cream.
