Just a couple of sketchbook pages I’ve finished for my summer project so far; the brief was to read some ‘apocalyptic fiction’ novels, so I’ve started work for ‘The Road’ by Cormac McCarthy. I loved the book, despite it being really harrowing and sad, but as this is such an open project, it’s quite a challenge to come up with really interesting ideas that are original and different. So thought I would get the obvious out of the way and do some pencil sketches from quotes, looking at trees and clouds, as much of the book describes a destroyed landscape that is ash strewn and dying. Lots of grey.. Hopefully this will give me a basis to go off on more of an interesting tangent for the project later!
Again this summer, this is another admission that I have been very lacking on the productive drawing front, so here is a little sketch I did from my sick bed.. flu.. yuck. All better now though! Not a perfect drawing, but I quite like that it’s not. Hopefully more posts to come more frequently!
