I always put off buying a scanner. They are something I have to leave behind when I move, and I think this is the 5th that I've bought. Everytime it takes months before I get my act together, and everytime I regret my hesitation. It feels so good to split my workflow between paper and computer. Ideas come more easily with my fingers on paper, and colours and design come more easily with my fingers on hotkeys.
These are by no means good drawings, but it is nice to get them out of my sketchbook.
Inspired by a new friend.(My half cocked attempt at hand lettering. I need to get better at this stuff.)
A drawing of my friend Mel doing her v special "infuriation dance". She can be terrifying but you should listen to her music, it is extremely lovely.
Ive laid off my observation drawing lately. Probably because I dont catch public transport anymore. I have make more of an effort.
Another nice thing about my new scanner is that it scans film. I havent quite figured out the best way to use it because it doesnt seem to automatically shift colours to their natural state (who would have thought colour negatives arent actually exact inversions of the real world?). One of the main reasons I like shooting on film is because it doesnt have any digital interpretation going on, but it seems unavoidable when trying to share photos online... anyway, this was a shot of my friend Bill from our trip to Victor Harbour a couple of weekends ago. Im going to stop making excuses for posting photos here, I think we can all get used to the idea of seeing them :) (Spotmatic F, Takumar 55mm 1.8 Fujifilm Superia X-tra400)
