dig my earth

So above is another one of those 'idea' spreads from my spare Moleskine. A couple of pages where I planted the seeds of future drawings. The left hand page soon grew into this drawing, below.

And, then later sprouted into this drawing:


The right hand page of the sketchbook, at the top of this post, hasn't actually grown into anything. Yet. But, it's all still there for future reference. And, that's another good thing about getting this stuff down in a sketchbook or notebook; I find it's the best place to turn when one might be going through a bit of a drawing funk. Cos if these ideas interested you enough to write them down in the first place, you can bet your bottom dollar that they'll still be inspiring at a later date. They are just all patiently waiting, below the ground, to blossom into a beautiful flower. Or a firm, young carrot.

thanks for posting this ... it's really intriguing to see how you take an idea, or two or five, and develop them into such delightful pictures. the pic of the jewelry has been one of my favorites for a long time.

lovely stuff ;)

I love seeing how your work develops from the idea to a drawing to a more finished drawing, though I must say that just the idea page looks like a lot of work in itself! where do you find the time? Awesome drawings, as always!
