Mol.2. FINALLY! The end of my second little sketchbook (these days it’s difficult drawing in anything else). There’s a little note in one of the pages, a direct quote from my old history teacher (hello Mr. Weever!): “Everything is negotiation- even your personal life”, which is probably my favourite thing from those last few pages.
Compositing project, done in Nuke. It’s not great, and I’m not particularly proud of it, it’s rather simple and with more time and better ideas it could have been better. But what can you do? At least it’s out of the way! :) It’s based on Otto Dix’s Portrait of Sylvia von Hardem.
Mol.#5. This one I quite like. I find the sketchbook only starts to get good after the first few pages. Nonno again, as it can be difficult to come up with interesting subjects in Naples in the Summer.
Mol.#5. From a dream I had; I think it was a life drawing lesson, and the model was on a velvet cube in the middle of a room. Nobody else was in the room, but the walls were covered in tiny peepholes revealing lots of blinking eyes. It was scarier in my dream.
Coffee at the design museum in London, and page of fox sketches from when I befriended a fox last year. Of course, the fox had no idea. Foxes are cool! Although now I’ve seen Antichrist, every time I see one, ‘CHAOS REIGNS’ just starts looping in my head.
Mol.#5. Texturing lesson, and thoughts on a British documentary that was so preoccupied with praising William Hogarth that it ended up dissing artists like Fragonard. I disagree! Let them eat cake, I say.
