I really haven't had much to blog about recently, just the daily grind, nothing of much note... or work I can't yet post up here (which can be frustrating some times!) Anyway, I have been doing these for myself. Running through a whole set of ideas based on the idea of loss. Inspired by the cheap, photocopied Lost Pet flyers. I wanted to keep them super simple, so no colour or tone, just line. i drew them all tiny too, so i wouldn't get too fussy or precious over the drawings. Each character is drawn about 4 or 5 cm tall. I have about 30 or so worked up to A4 and i want to reach 40, before i decide what i can actually do with them. I want to play around a bit with the actual sheet of A4 too, maybe fold it and hide a character or tear a piece out etc It's my usual theme of mostly single character, given a stage for their response to the title. As much as i fight this limited format of mine, i keep coming back to it... it's what comes most naturally, I'm obviously doing it for some reason... i just don't understand it, so I'm trying not to over think it this time. This is what i do. It speaks without me having to over-dress it all.
