This is a drawing I started some time ago, and have tweaked and altered over time. It is now a small concertina book, with a blue leather cover and a red velvet ribbon to close it. Folded up it measures 9.5 x 8 cm.
It began life as a string of blots, made from liquid pencil (a paste of graphite) dropped randomly into water droplets on watercolour paper. I then pressed scrunched-up plastic wrap into it and left it to dry. The next step was drawing into it with pencil, finding small creatures and forms reminiscent of natural objects. The forms themselves suggested every next step. A little colour, using pencils, came at the end.
