I love the little pink flower head in Minnie Mouse's hand - you do detail so well! I look at the big spaces out there and lack inspiration, you find it in everything, I am so in awe!!!

As always I'm amazed at the complexity of your drawings - all those tiny links and jumble of chains - how how how do you do it???

Oooh, what a big honking keyring!! It's been one of my aims to build up my own key chain. Nothing so massive as your drawing yet, but I'm up to 6, it's the most I've had yet! :-)

Awesome work. You must be listening to music or talk radio while you work. This has got to take lots of time.

Definitely not a set of "boy's keys." I'm not sure that it could even fit in my pocket. It would probably wear a hole in my pants.

I like it - enjoy it - wish I could draw like that.

Thanks for sharing.

Such intricate and distinctive work. I love the way you make very ordinary things seem somehow alive, as if each item has a story it's itching to tell. Thanks for answering my question (last posting) - 20 hours is a big investment.

That is awesome. I want it. Not the keys, but the sketch for my office. Very cool Andrea.

Oh, and I can't begin to tell you how much this resonates with me on discussions I've had with Ruth about her key-ball-and-chain. Ha.

I'm always terribly impressed with your pen drawings. Can I ask a bit more about your process? Do you do any pencil underdrawing at all, or do you just start straight in with a pen?

Blogger andrea joseph's sketchblog said...

Thank you all, folks.

This drawing was never meant to be quite so big. I was drawing with a damp plaster on my little finger (I didn't realise it was damp, it's not a new technique, or anything) and it smudged the whole page. So to cover the smudges I drew more and more and more keys.

TLC Illustration, I didn't use any pencil here. I do use pencil, to map out the composition, usually. But with a big drawing like this I will just dive straight in with ink. If you make a mistake, on a drawing like this, it doesn't matter too much. It can be hidden!

Cheers, everyone, you make my day.
