Stepping back from the larger scale of yesterday’s ‘Reconciliation’ image, I decided to do a more detailed hand drawing. I’ll admit that when it comes to figurative drawing I tend towards the more cartoonish side of things, so I’m trying to improve on getting the details right. 

In other news, initial plans are under way on a collaborative project with the brilliant printmaker and artist Alex Procter (whose work can be found here). Our aim is to combine our illustrative skills on a series of Scottish poems, which hopefully we will publish by the end of the year. Having known Alex and her work for several years now, I’m very excited to be working on something with her – more updates on this as and when we can.
