Rolling my own…

20131124-124837.jpg

Regular readers will be aware of the excellent work of Iain MacIntosh, whose work I regularly highlight on here.
I used to be a keen drawer at school thirty-five years ago and whilst I did scramble my way to an O Level, I never really built upon that. I kept my hand in for a few years afterwards though before getting bogged down in the detritus of the 1980s!
Iain’s work however has re-awakened my interest and for the last week or so, I’ve been steadily working away at this drawing, bringing the old skills into action again.
It’s amazingly therapeutic though and I can quite easily potter away for an hour after work as my brain empties of the day’s rubbish.
There’s still a great deal to be done with this first effort though and it’s very much a work in progress.
I thought I’d share it now though! 🙂
