i guess i'll call it sickness gone

Here's another sketchbook spread that, until now, had remained unposted. I made this some time last summer at my friend, and drawing companion, Lynne Chapman's house. Lynne was planning a workshop that she was giving at last year's Urban Sketcher's Symposium and used some of our Sketchcrawl group as guinea pigs.

I've made no secret that I've been finding it difficult to get into drawing for some time. Jeez, I've been banging on about it for months. It's funny though, it's only when I am out drawing with other people that it's not an issue. I actually enjoy that more than when I'm sat at home drawing, doing my own thing. Perhaps it's because I'm stretching myself. I dunno. But, I do know this; the little drawing of a typewriter, and the bike actually, have pleased me more than anything else I've drawn in quite some time. They were drawn in a totally alien way to how I would normally draw (water colour pencil was put on the page before I drew the shapes in) and that's exciting.

Maybe it's time for a change.

I do find it funny when I come across an artist whose work was the same for the entire length of their life. It's good to mix it up, go through different 'periods' if you will and play with different materials.

Look forward to seeing what happens.

I don't suppose most of us mind how you do it ...just so long as you do it!
Nice to see you back at it, Andrea.
Cheers!

i have to say i have only started following your drawings knowing who you are for the last 5 or 6 months having run across you on the internet. But i have seen your work for years and very much enjoyed the detail you put into each piece. The ability to draw what you see so well is truly a gift and i thank you for sharing it with me.

I love the little whirligig on the end of the typewriter barrel! Cute little detail!
