First posted January 26, 2018. Update, January 28, 2018: I thought this drawing could use some context. It started as an idea for an editorial illustration – about humanity and the oceans. I was having a hard time communicating what I wanted to say so I moved on to a fresh page in my sketchbook and started something else.
I filled the last pages of my old sketchbook at the end of the year. Before putting it away, I flipped through it and was surprised to see how many pages had the beginnings of drawings that weren’t finished (including this one). I decided to take another stab at the things that I’d abandoned and see what comes out. (This is just to say that every now and then I may be posting seemingly random things as I tackle sketches that stumped me.)
