The Eyes


Hey, a drawing! Well, a section of a drawing, that may or may not make it to the CoMix exhibition.

If I'm being coy, it's because the whole blogging works-in-progress thing makes me uncomfortable. Drawing to deadlines for clients usually means that, from the moment I put pencil to paper, questions come: will they like it? is it what they want? how much time should I spend on this? In that context, it's not a bad thing. (The client is paying - they should get what they want.)

But for once, I'm trying to draw what I want to, without knowing exactly what the outcome will be. I want to make mistakes, do awful drawings, pursue horrible ideas, to get them out of the way.

So at best I'll blog snippets of drawings, and some of them I might not blog at all. It's the only way I can think of to silence the questions, and get on with drawing.

As nice as it is to share, it's hard to be exposed while you're doing something really personal - I for one tend to chicken out. I like the person behind the person in her eyes :)

Am having the same problem with the comix work in progress.

Also planning to only show bits of works. Am not even sure the drawings I'm working on will make it to the show! As a result my drawings are far to stiff now :(

Love those furry eyebrows, though!
