Recently I’ve been doing a lot more drawing which is quite illustrative. I went to Manchester and bought a really cute small dot pad – which was quite unlike the sketchbooks I was drawing in for my degree.
So when I’ve had a spare moment I’ve been trying to do some drawing and painting so had to unearth my paints, pens and crayons which were at the back of my closet. I’ve drawn from a variety of pictures found in old magazines and newspapers as well as books.
When I was drawing at university I was focusing on textures as the basis for my hand knitting the drawings felt quite earnest so it’s nice doing something more figurative and playful.
