Page 6 has been a long time in process/development and tonight it’s reached a stage where I feel I can move on to focus on page 7.
I’ve recently gained some more momentum with the comic. Different strands are coming together and I’m feeling the therapeutic benefit of this. Unconscious expression has been freed up and I’m noticing some nice examples of this. Here’s the latest: a detail from the current page-in-progress where the weight and tragedy of Brimham Rocks was unconsciously echoed by the pedal of a mangled bike (that I found on a beach in Tyne & Wear as part of an art project 30 years ago) delicately touching the ominous shadow of the moon. The ‘motif’ of precarious balance is echoed and there is an unconscious expression on the nature and substance of ’emotional weight’ that resonated for me. Needed to share it.
Webcomic page I’m working on at home is the lock screen on my phone. Had a flurry of ideas today & now I feel a million miles away from my drawing board. Having my little black book with me to jot ideas down has been really important today.
I drew this pencil illustration of my Aunty & her 2 brothers (my Dad & Uncle) for my Aunty’s 80th birthday, which is today. I gave her the picture at the weekend and she seemed very pleased. Happy Birthday Aunty Mary, with much love x
Completed Inktober on time this year. The final entry is a drawing of my wife’s delicious coffee and walnut cake. Baked with love for her family.
