In preparation for my next Aesop I drew a humpback whale. I was really excited with this drawing, I really appreciate the whale-y form. To think they were land animals once who gradually sunk into the waves, what a transition! I'm embracing the continuous line technique too, it allows me to be scribbly and true to my human mistakes, plus I think it looks swimmy which works with the subject of the drawing.
Coffee has become quite a heavy feature in my drawings now, there’s a persistent coffee flavour circulating in the air from leaving three day old cups lying around in my room, mmmm… My parents are less enthusiastic, but I’m liking the grainy stain it leaves behind, it boosts the surface texture of the drawing.
