Rhinoceros warriors! :D I’ve been drawing a lot in the past few days, but I’ve finished very little, so I hope to get lots done while I’m at this cultural thingy in Ottawa next weekend and then dump it all over the internet when I get back. Ummm… that’s all I guess! :)
“With this sketchbook, I’ve been challenging my creativity by starting first with a simple shape, drawn without the end goal in mind. Once the shape is drawn, I go about filling it with a character that develops a story of its own. The idea here is to get out of my own way, to let the drawing develop itself without forcing it into a desired narrative or purpose.”
