In way of explanation…
Umanbn is a blog with a focus on sketching and the visual arts, with a particular focus on my own sketches and attempts at painting. Many of my subjects are people, drawn whenever I have the time, while I’m traveling or relaxing. For some reason I cannot explain many of them old. I also love to sketch and paint the natural world though with less success. There are also many references and posts relating to abstract art, in whatever medium, whether intentional or unintentional, Naive, and Outsider Art, Art and Craft and lots of links to other Umanbn’s who like sketching.
A designer by trade, you will also find blog posts with reference to style and fashion, architecture and photography, as well as my love for the written word, in the from of book reviews and graphic novels. Links to my favourite blogs you can find at the bottom of the main page, which I hope you can use and find inspiration in. Sometimes in my jumbled eclectic, creative brain I feel I should reduce and focus the blog to one subject, but somehow a narrow focus always escapes me and anyway is not nearly as interesting and inspiring as broad view to everything, I hope you agree.
Please feel free to take images from the blog if you need, but do please reference Umanbn as the source and let me know if you wish to publish. I am more than likely to agree! I hoped the name Umanbn was self-explanatory if not, it was my attempt to create an original name and is a reduction of Human Being when pronounced phonetically. Happy browsing….Umanbn
