|'The New Year', pastel on paper, 2013|
I'm trying to get into the habit of posting regular new sketches and other interesting things on this blog, particularly those that are unlikely to be published, not being part of any project - at least not originally. This one is a pastel drawing which I has since proved useful as a poster illustration for a young artists award (for school-age artists), based in my home city of Perth, Western Australia. Many such drawings start out as a jumble of shapes that eventually resolve into something, either successfully or not! The most interesting detail of this one may not be immediately obvious. This and a handful of other works will be exhibited at the Illustration Cupboard in London later this year, a very nice gallery to visit if you haven't already.
