“catch and release”

One of those odd drawings that springs forth almost fully formed, and without too much conscious meaning. I was thinking about the flower/faery happiness/growth avatar, and the fleetingness of happiness, when inspiration struck. It came together in a hot streak four mornings of drawing, and had me hanging out to get back to it, seeing it on my desk in the working week in between.

Something that has really helped these last couple of drawings has been not just finding reference images but bashing them together into a mockup. For this one I even cropped it to the frame which was amazingly helpful to place it on the paper. Still crushed it right to the edges though…

    Hah. I like your reference/ mock up image. Love the lurid fluro colour contrasting with the grey and white. A great drawing with good shading. Flower Power!
