Jan Szafranski
Artist | Professional | Varied
United Kingdom
Artist-turned-photographer who earnt a living as a designer and artist between jobs as a teacher.

Started out as a comic book artist (first underground in the 70s to mainstream in the late 80s) before teaching art & photography to teens. Moved into computers, web-design, photo-manips, etc. before returning to teaching in 2002 (as an English teacher).

In 2006 I temporarily lost my sight (right in the middle of a lesson with Year 11s), regained it but then started on the slow downhill decline that comes with MS... including pain, fatigue, vision & cognitive problems, and tremors & spasms. All of which makes drawing, painting and photographing very difficult.

I'm now sorta-retired because of the symptoms, so until I curl up into a gibbering ball... I'll try to get some art done... and get it up here.

My stuff can also be found on the interweb...

:bulletblue:… My Google+ page
:bulletblue: My website
:bulletblue: BlueCanvas
:bulletblue:… or RedBubble
:bulletblue: Twitter
:bulletblue:… MySpace
:bulletblue:… or… FaceBook

as well as in the Painted-Ladies group...

Current Residence: 1st bit of Greenbelt outside of London

Personal Quote: What's that dripping... oh, my heart bleeding.

Journal History

Seems like forever...

It's good to be back, having spent so long away (blame my broadband and health... both sick , for the reason). It's going to take me a while to get back up to speed so be patient :)
