I have always really loved drawing, but over the past few years have struggled to motivate myself to do some. I think I've always enjoyed drawing the same things though. Really, really mundane things. In year 11 at school, we had to draw a mushroom on A3 paper for about an hour, and I got an A* for it. It was, by far, the most detailed drawing of a mushroom you could ever imagine seeing. During my As Art year, I draw shoelaces and ribbon over an A2 page, and to this day it is one of my favourite ever sketchbook pages.
With all of my What Katie Found crafty makes going on over the past year, I have put drawing on the back burner for a while to make friends with my sewing machine. Although, last Monday morning, I woke up and the sun was shining through our bedroom window, casting shadows onto the wall, so I grabbed the nearest piece of paper and a black biro, and lay in bed for ten minutes interpreting the scene. It was the happiest Monday morning I have encountered for some time!I am a bit apprehensive about sharing my drawings, knowing that there are so many fantastic drawers and illustrators out there, but I will be brave, as it would be really good to have some feedback :)
I hope you enjoy them, the simple, the mundane and the real.
