Drawing 144/365

I’m trying something new with this. I thought I’d have a go at doing some illustrations kinda like my nephews do. I have a few of their drawings on the fridge and I look at them occasionally. I’m always amazed at the line work and haphazard placement of objects and colours. They have real energy and life.

So I had a go at clearing my thoughts and just letting the pencil go where it will. It was kinda like a meditation, my mind kept trying to take control and question everything I was doing. It was a real fight to stop rationalising every little mark I left on the paper. Anyway, I think some of these (there are some more to come) worked out well. The process… I used pencil and a bit of pen, brought the scan into illustrator and added the final pieces as randomly as possible.
