On the way home…

Right now I’m sitting at the station waiting for my train to embark on the first leg of my 32 hour trip home. The familiar sound of electronic chimes and p.a. announcements. The long haul. In 32 hours I’ll be back in Tasmania. In 33 hours I’ll probably be very much asleep, and for the next week or so I hope to be doing just that and little else. So posts and artwork will be light, but I’m looking forward to getting back to work with some new inspiration and a bit more energy. In the meantime the 2012 gallery had been updated with some of the pieces I’ve done recently. See everyone in 2 weeks!

details…

 

I got the scanned data back from the print shop today and they did a fantastic job capturing all the fine details. The image was enormous,¬† so my trusty old computer choked on it for a while, but I’ve managed to sample a few details for closer inspection. Technical issues aside, the piece is done, and over the last few months I’ve learned a great deal about drawing craft, the limits of my technique and also had (a lot of) time to consider why I’m doing such labour intensive work. Hope you enjoy.
