Making children

I have been drawing in the Horniman Museum working on designs for The Children of Babooda.  It is early days but I am having fun so far.

  1. So, are you taking elements of the creatures you're studying and creating characters of them? Stunning drawings

    1. Yes, that's right. I start to draw a creature by collaging bits and pieces of the animals I can see around me. When one creature is done I walk to a different spot and start again.

    1. It's kind of like Noah's Ark! I'll have to make them a little bit less purely animals though. They need to have more in common...
