A few drawings using a little graphite pencil, a fine liner and a felt tip! I’m quite happy with these and the eyes which are no longer dots. I might pursue this method of working but maybe see what happens if I use a brush pen instead of the graphite perhaps.

UEA Collaboration, final images!

UEA Collaboration, final images!

Today I’ve bought together some final images from my collaboration with UEA student Connie Cubitt. As seen, the images are very experimental.
