on my flight from Sydney to Perth I took along my sketch book and began to scribble, this is what I created...a seahorse of sorts...not a realistic or true image but instead it is what was in my head, I didn't use any photo or inspiration, and I know it's not what a real seahorse looks like but as I said it is what was in my head...so don't make a big song and dance about the tail being the wrong way or the fins being wrong or the species being non exsistant...because...it's just a drawing and I like it.

I got back in to uni this week...a step closer to my double degree in art. The unit I am currently studying meant I needed to draw a couple of things...such as the hammer, rabbit and hand...the first assignment looks at associations of objects.
I won't share details because I am still working on this but I wanted to share my sketches with you. The rabbit is based on an early century etch...very simplistic.
The hammer is just a fantasy tool...I totally need this one in my kit!
The hand...the hand was a huge challenge for me and this is my very first attempt at drawing a hand...my hand! I am really pleased at how well it actually turned out.
It's good to put your fears behind you when it comes to art and just try...if it's crap...then try again.
