Inspiration Strikes

…at inappropriate times.


WIP of Lady with Birds. 

Woke up in a daze this morning around 6 o’clock and had such a vivid image in my head that I had to draw before going back to sleep. Needless to say, the going back to sleep never occurred, but at least I have another illustration to show for it.

Here is the finished product;

A4 Piece, Graphite on Paper, 3 Hours

Taking a well deserved break from continual work this week and wanting to do something fun, this intense looking lady sprung from the pencil around midnight last night.

As with most things, inspiration strikes at the most inappropriate time so I risked a sleep deprived shift in order to batter this one out.

All in all it took around 3 hours to complete and she appears to be a lot moodier than my usual ladies. Might have to do with the lack of rest or could be due to my partner being away for 1 week as of yesterday. He’s currently pretending to be a proper scientist in Spain documenting some local Geology, ( or fancy¬†rocks to you and I).

And as much as I am enjoying my freedom, (i.e. being able to eat the same bad meal three nights in a row), one thing I know your drawing does is show you how you can really be feeling.

I’ll be trying to keep it perkier for the next few days, which is just as well as I have a few commissions to complete, and keep you all up to date with any sneaky behind the scene sketches on anything exciting I’ll be working on.

Keep your eyes peeled!
