Instead I started planning a book to enter for the 23 Sandy Gallery exhibition ‘Wayfinders’. I began by exploring old maps which led to medieval sea monsters and then onto bestiaries. As usual it hasn’t gone in the direction I was planning, I think this book is turning into a print. And unusually for my work it seems to be getting a bit political. These are some of my preparatory scribbles.
Although I was going for tall and thin I think I prefer the second one. It gives a more chaotic feel which fits the subject better.
