These two sketches are from the beginning of this year. Mostly they’re attempts to get myself drawing again. In January I was feeling pretty exhausted. We’d just spent large chunks of December moving out of our old apartment and I was starting a new job. I didn’t have it in me to work on any of the larger projects that were on my plate. The drawing on the left is an image that came to me as I was drawing it. The sketch on the right is a swamp monster that has turned up in my sketches on a regular basis over the last couple of decades.
