I'm finding out that my patience for drawing is lost, has been for a while. I sketch maps of ideas of which a few will become block impressions on paper.
Carving a wood or linoleum block is like drawing in reverse, you start with a black surface and little by little your knife finds the outlines and highlights, there is no adding; its all about permanently removing material and committing to every line because there is no eraser tool. I love this way of "drawing"
Now, if anyone is ever going to pay me for an idea I better start showing them clean real drawings that represent such idea, so here we go... back to my school days of constant drawing until I develop my patience again.
Yeah, but now I have also developed a thing for distorting everything...
