When I'm concentrating on a drawing I cant help but contemplate what else is going on in my life. I thought my 'quarry' work was behind me. Paid illustration has been scarce of late and temping in a warehouse has been a way of generating a little bit income. It's a totally different world to being freelance and nine miles away up some very steep hills.
I used a toothbrush and ink to create the splatter effect, masking out the area where I wanted the writing to go. Feels like I threw every technique I know onto these pages.
