When you spend your career blessed to be working with supremely talented artistic people, it is inevitable that you regard your own scratchings with a critical eye. But, part of this project is to experiment, to start from somewhere, wherever that may be, and to try again, fail, learn, improve and hopefully with time make something I am not embarrassed by. It’s not that what’s on the front of this card is bad, but it’s not particularly good, either. I’m trying to introduce colour into my sketches, and in a way that I can take with me wherever I happen to be. I’m using nice watercolour pencils with no clue of how to really use them. This is part of a piece of concept art for the entrance space to a small Egyptology museum in London that we worked on in Birmingham earlier in the week.
