I’ve occupied the small room in our Portakabin studio. In only a few days I can see how much difference it can make to my practice, especially by separating where I make drawings and where I do everything else: reading, writing, all the online stuff.
On my table in the studio right now:
Thinking about what I saw at the Double Take show at Drawing Room, questions I need to ask myself:
- what do I want to collage? Working answer: photographs and/or drawings of me as a child and now, or at least as an adult
- presented how? Current thoughts involve the welded metal drawing frames I found last year
- what’s the story? and how will I tell it? Do I need to know?

- scale? at the moment, immersion feels important. Also because things are harder to read if you are very close up, which you would be in my frames.
