More Great TV News: New Episodes of “Mock the Week”

If you’ve been playing the home game of “How Many UK Television Shows Does Roz Watch Anyway?” you’ll be pleased to know that one of my favorite shows has new episodes out in the US.

More Episodes of WILTY

I’ve been having serious withdrawl symptoms with no new episodes of “Would I Lie To You.” Then a couple weeks ago I saw it jumped to the front of my queue—more episodes. I’ve sped through them, unable to h help myself, and now of course want more episodes of “WILTY” all over again. But I […]

Television Recommendation—Dead Still

I’ve been meaning to recommend “Dead Still” for over a year. This show popped up on Acorn.  It’s about a postmortem photographer working in the late 19th century in Ireland. There are some very interesting characters, a mystery about the man’s past which runs through the whole season, and incredible set decoration, wardrobe, and hairstyles. […]

In Context—Another Peek at Pandemic Life

Pandemic life can’t help but pop up in your journal if you’re working from home. I’ve been sorting my images, all in little folders ready for blog posts. I have had some, like this one from 2020 set to go—but I don’t remember what the topic was to be.  Last week (2021) I  cooked a […]

Another Alun Armstrong Sketch

Here’s another brush pen and ink sketch of Alun Armstrong.   A wonderful set of dundrearies. Are they talked about as a set ? What is the related hairstyling vocabulary? Well, something to ponder, along with that wonderful hairdo. #MarchIsSketchAlunArmstrongMonth

Another Peek into “Bleak House”

In February I was sketching a lot of other folks besides Alun Armstrong. Here’s a sketch of Timothy West from “Bleak House.” I really can’t resist dundrearies!

A Little Bit of TV for the Pandemic

I’ll have more to say about television for the Pandemic, but today I want to recommend something I watched while recovering from cataract surgery in 2019. If you haven’t watched it now would be a good time: “Godless.” (On Netflix.) Scott Frank who created and wrote “Queen’s Gambit” wrote it. It’s a Western. The acting, […]

It’s Simply Fun to Sketch Alun Armstrong

Actor Alun Armstong has one of the best noses on the planet. His face is simply fun to sketch. Last year I had just started watching “New Tricks” (a detective series that is available on several streaming platforms), when I sketched this brush pen sketch (Pentel brush pen with ink wash. Sometimes when working working […]

In Context—Brush Pen Portrait

I post this today as a reminder that when you’re going through rough times it’s important to keep using your creativity. Something imperfect is better than not having a go. Exercising your creativity generates new energy.

Working with Analogous Colors

Late at night, relaxing and watching British comedy shows I simply have to sketch. This sketch from December 2019 is an analogous color sketch of Johnny Vegas when guesting on “QI.” Everyone needs to watch “QI.” It’s vastly fun, entertaining, and sometimes you even learn something. (Stephen Fry hosted for a number of seasons and […]
