“I wrote about what was around me; that was the whole point – to get down the experiences, scenes, people, etc. But some people are so daft they don’t understand that writing about Prestwich is just as valid as Dante writing about his inferno.”

10 years of The Folk Ye Bump Intae

I recently got a reminder from WordPress that this blog had been on the go for ten years. I started it up because at that time I had drawings that were mounting up, drawings that were just based on random varied encounters and as such they weren’t grouped around any one theme. I didn’t really know what to do with them, where they should go. Then I realised, random varied encounters WAS the theme, and I thought a blog template would be the best way to get them out there, and keep uploading new work as I make it. That was in 2010. In 2011 I had a show at Glasgow Project Room using most of the drawings from the site up to that point, exhibited as unframed digital prints panel-pinned to the walls. It was called The Folk Ye Bump Intae: 99 Drawings In The Life Of Stuart Murray.

Reproduced below is the very first drawing I published on the blog in July 2010. The guy in the wheelchair trying to pull himself along with his feet was very smartly dressed and wore a lot of jewelery. I met him briefly here as we both passed by The Laurieston Bar in Glasgow.
