Current obsessions

A beetle - with detail of scarab

Where do you start when you haven’t been actively creating work for a numbers of years?

I feel like I need to:

  • rebuild some technical skills
  • explore new materials
  • allow concepts and imagery to grow

I have an obsession with beetles and fur at the moment. I hope to regain some drawing skills using these images, and exploring the use of coloured pens and pencils. Here’s a beetle sketch, overlaid with a scarab from the Smithsonian Institute (public domain image in case you were wondering).

I plan to animate the beetles, so now off to better my skills in graphics and animation applications as well.
