Remaining productive during this lockdown is proving curiously difficult. In normal circumstances, the opportunity to stay at home, without any interruptions, would be a fantastically rare, and welcome opportunity. I have no difficulty spending long periods of time alone, but this externally imposed isolation, has proved oddly inhibiting. I know I am not alone in having trouble focussing on my work.
To counter this fog of dissipated energy, I set myself the task of making one pencil drawing a day, for 30 days. Some of them would take more than a day, some only a couple of hours.
I have created a short film, where you see them in the order that they were made.
I am usually quite dismissive of the idea that my state of mind shows in my work, but perhaps this film is quite revealing.
So, this is my first blog post here, on my website. Welcome.
Here are some new A4 pencil drawings. I make these frequently, and see them as a necessary exercise.
