Drawing and photography are central to my practice. Both make pressing - if sometimes fictitious - claims to the capture of lost moments.


Cuddle (take 2)

Brush markers in Moleskine sketchbook, and pencil on the last page.

I was inspired by the mutual embrace the other day. Fátima scoops Possum up, and Possum just stays put, like a fur doll, very funny. Drew these from photos I took - you can see that, especially in the first spread. There's a quality of abstraction you get when drawing from photos that is usually absent (at least for me) when drawing from direct observation.
