Whilst clearing out the office art drawers I came across some drawings I did some years back. Drawing was my creative outlet before I picked up a camera and the technology took hold. I embraced its speed of capture; pencils and pens were sidelined.
Although still pleased with these drawings, I'm excited and raring to set to work in a more illustrative way: more interpretive, with a freer, simpler feel.
Inspired, and with a timely set of new pencils and charcoals (a super Christmas present) and a copy of "Sketchbooks: The hidden art of designers, illustrators & creatives" at hand, 2010 is a year when I go back to basics and connect with raw materials again.
