I though I better practice perspective today. With rain pending, I went for a drawer in the kitchen, pulled out a bunch of tools and went to work.

Forgetting how hard tools are, the drawing progressed, went backwards, and then moved ahead. The problem with a recognizable object is; familiarity. If one screws up, it’s so damn obvious.

  1. But you make it more difficult by putting so many objects in one drawing, and then overlapping them in clever ways, which is really at the heart of what makes your drawing style what it is… it’s like a tension between depicting an object and taking a flight of fancy based on it. And it’s always seemed to me that the negative space/relationships among objects are big concerns, too.

    No doubt all the objects are recognizable here, what one wonders is why are they sort of scrambled like this, and not lined up in an orderly, workmanlike fashion? It keep things more interesting, that’s why…yes?
    (There are the lines on the paper again, nice!)
