Took a break today. Only drew for the amusement of it. No clear end in mind.
Scrap of paper, pencils, markers, scissors, adhesives, and collage bits from a 1915 book titled Character, How to Strengthen It. Book’s always amused me. I use it carefully, as it slowly dissapears. I settle into drawing a profile. Text determines direction in this case. I don’t have much room to work with and I like the set up of a small portrait. Small portraiture… usually means I’m going to play with human thoughts/emotions.
Been thinking about Character. You know…that thing we develop as we age. And saw Alice in Wonderland this weekend, queens make an impression. A play of both word and image, is how this drawing pans out.
I prefer the simplicity of the start. Too late to go back. Rework. Tighten up composition.
Title comes with end result, A Character’s Character. On days like this…I think it might be fun to illustrate children’s books.
