Mondoodle 8-11-2010

I have been thoroughly AWOL for the last couple of weeks because I was in JAPAN! (Insert face-breakingly enormous smiley here.) And what’s more it was for a holiday. An actual holiday – I took no drafts, didn’t jot ideas, wrote none of my novel and only drew about twice. Really and truly. It was wonderful. It was only toward the end that I got a little twitchy and picked up the pen. But I took lots of pictures, and most of what I wanted to draw was glimpsed out of a train window or from a speeding car – those fractional sights that you wish you could freeze in you brain and retrieve later. As soon as I can be cyborged – that’s what I want. Perfect video recall.

Anyway – more about that soon. For now, here’s a little girl… freehand, quick, no pencil predrawing.

Drawn at the desk in sight of the crab-apple blossom, the last blast of fiery mollus azaleas, and listening to sparrow-gossip. Tuesday 9th November, 2010.

There has been a lot happening this year that I’ve not been sharing very much. I think I’ve been feeling guilty about projects and how some have not progressed quickly, or have stolen time from others. But that’s enough of that! I have a meeting this afternoon then I should know more about my booky future.

Proper updates  to follow.
