Collaborations with Younger Self

space2dA little while ago I came across an old sketchbook I had when I was about six. It was mostly full of incoherent scribbles, but with a few more-or-less finished drawings. Somewhere online, I’d seen some paintings done by a mother and daughter… the child had done the initial drawing then the mother added her own interpretation with the colour, but following her daughter’s lines exactly. I thought it would be interesting to do the same but with old drawings. What I got from this, I think, was an insight into my childhood imagination and also some refreshing practice at a new – or old- style of painting. Some friends have suggested I should animate these, so perhaps that’s the next step. (Click on the image to see more.)
