Comets keep making an appearance in my work. I thought it would be fun to see how my treatment of them has changed over the years.
I cracked open a brand new Moleskine notebook this week, and I realise yet another good reason to use them: they lie flat when open, making it easier to photograph pages for social media. I don’t know how long mine will open out flat because I glue papers, scraps, collages and experiments in my notebooks and they tend to become bulky in time. I have a lot of notebooks with empty pages in the back because I can’t fit anything else in without bursting the covers.
Now, this is an interesting journey I am taking. I had thought my drawing of sprouting chestnuts was going to be one of the easiest to take further, which is why I chose to work on it at the beginning of this project. It wasn’t as plain sailing as the last one, however, in which Chinese-style floral decorations from a bowl sit well within swirling cloud forms, and the two techniques hold a nice conversation.
