A Shrewsbury Big Boarder writes - about drawing

PCOer Pete Dredge writes about making a Big Board for the Shrewsbury International Cartoon Festival:

I've been in training for weeks now, aiming to be at peak fitness for the Big Board Challenge at Shrewsbury this month. Yes, the "knee-bending, back-stretching, squat-thrusting and magnum marker pen-clutching" exercise DVD has been dusted off once again in preparation for this most unnatural of acts for the normally indoor, horizontal A4 practitioner of the cartoon art. Rather like a finely tuned Test cricketer being asked to adjust to the Twenty20 version of the game, the entire spectacle is rather more entertaining for the uninitiated than for the true connoisseur of the art!
