I'm finding it slow going, but halfway house and here's my first four. The keyhole with scratches worked fine. Next is Doors Filter In, named after a song that starts "Well chosen metaphors, instead of all those slamming doors" and mentions "Steps steep, dreams deep" - finding it hard to let go and draw confident and fluid, this was stiff and awkward, saved by turning it into not what I meant in the first place - this is going to happen quite a lot.
The selfportrait looks unfinished, but I daren't touch it more - it's quite a fragile sketch and I don't have the skill to carry on.
And fourthly is Strumerama, a bit more relaxed and fluid. Yes, fairly pleased with that one. I can see lots of great work being posted on the blog, looking forward to seeing it in the actual books, still feeling daunted by adding my tuppence hapenny...but not as daunted as before I put the first pen to paper.
