BLAST FROM THE PAST

So this evening my youngest daughter says to me…

“Have you got any ideas for my child development homework? I have to come up with an idea for a kids book. It only has to be the opening pages”

She reminded me of a project I did at college, waaaaay back when…..
So we went to dig out my old college folders and I showed her the start of a story I had created and then I carried on flipping through all my old illustrations and sketches and then some of my first ever ‘fan’ driven artwork appeared.

These pieces are around 30 years old.
They were created when I came out of the sci-fi closet and joined a club.
They are pencil work and created before I’d ever even touched a computer!!

Sorry about the quality.
They are A2 in size and won’t fit onto my scanner.

I really don’t think I’d have the patience to do something like this again.
It’s probably been a good 20 – 25 years since I’ve even picked up a pencil in anger!
Not that I haven’t given it a go. I just don’t have the time or the patience to sit for hours on end until a piece is complete.
