Question Time is one of those television programs that I grew up with and have watched all my life. For those of you who are not familiar with it, it consists of a panel of invited guests- politicians, celebrities, press, political/historical commentators- who have to answer questions on current political and world events which have been sent in by members of the public. Each week the program visits a different town/city (usually in the UK, but occasionally they travel) where members of the general public make up the audience and get the chance to quiz the panel. I started watching it as a teenager and download it every week to watch (I got rid of my TV years ago).

When giving out the contact details for the programme, the presenter commented that they never get any postcards any more, which inspired me to transfer my doodling onto postcards :D

While I am sat at my desk on a friday morning watching the previous nights show, I doodle on a postcard...this is partly a warm up exercise and partly to stop me getting too annoyed with the politicians lol I will either add the date of the broadcast and/or the place it was being held to the design. Sometimes they are inspired by the topics under discussion and sometimes they are just random, depending on my mood. I will also often add objects from the place...patterns in the architecture, designs on clothing, jewellery etc. I will sometimes add in grey marker for a little variety or use a water brush to wash out the ink. I have only done one of the doodles on patterned coloured paper (it needed using up) and like the result on this paper...I may do that again. 

All are postcard size and I completed each one within the hour duration of the programme.

The quote regarding Mr Milliband (leader of the Labour Party) on the Middlesborough card was made by a member of the audience and it just had to go in...I'm surprised it wasn't picked up by the media lol. The dragonfly on the first card is a stamp which came free with a magazine..there were dragonflies on the presenters tie and it was sat on the desk next to me.

I have another ten of these postcards to scan and upload, which I am hoping to have done by the end of the week...stay tuned folks
