I was inspired after seeing Jeffrey Lewis in conversation last night in London to try combining drawing from life with whatever else pops into my head, which is what appeared to fill many of his sketchbooks.

Is this drawing I’ve just finished a commentary on the state of affairs that large corporations / banks leave the rest of us in? Is it my subconscious acting out following the letter I received today from the Royal Academy letting me know that, despite one of my pictures being shortlisted, I’ve not made it into the Summer Exhibition? Or are the fingers actually doing the ‘peace sign’?

I just don’t know.

But I don’t think it’s that last one.
