Grace thinking hard…

a difficult task to figure out...

As has been the usual lately, I am spending my drawing time on Albion. Here is another sneak peak at an image which will be coming in the next couple of weeks.

Unrelated… this recent Cute Overload posting got me smiling this morning!

UPDATE: New poem to accompany the image – thanks Tom!!

Intensely focused on the goal
the wheels of intellect engaged
each new idea tested, rolled
between her fingers, quick and sage.
Perhaps a lever lifting there
would raise it high into the air?
But no! The crushing force will break
the oaken planks of hull and strake!
Some another way to find
fulfilling all the hard constraints
remaining free of failure’s taints
dredging through the dark of mind
to create a truth that’s new
passing down the dark and through

random face…

thinking about things...

Well, the last story has wrapped up and it will be a little while before there’s a new narrative to follow. In the meantime, I will (while starting work on the Next Thing) try to keep regularly posting some doodles and thoughts. I think I will be doodling faces for a bit since drawing expressive faces will be a very useful skill for the next project too. I will likely also be experimenting with different techniques and trying to find ways to be quicker and get some more creative effects.When it is time, I will definitely give some notice about the new project and perhaps some sneak peeks – I am quite excited about it. It will be great fun to work on and I hope you will find it fun to read and look at too!
