What’s the Wild Thing thinking about?
I think he feels a little lost in this big white page, and he misses Max a lot…
¿Que estará pensando el monstruo?
Creo que se siente un poco perdido en esa gran página blanca. Y añora mucho a Max…
This quick sketch is in felt tip. I went on an artist camp out west of Alice Springs in NT Australia. We arrived, pulled out the swags and sketch books and went hiking to this amazing rock formation. The six of us were so fixated on the landscape we all seperated, doing our own thing. Our guide started to panic at dusk, light was fading and the dingoes were out. Although LOST in the central desert it was pretty good. The rocks became an intense orange purple.
“Lost”. Idea is a little nostalgic memories of childhood, even time passed but it is still with you, part of you. I used pen, Faber-Castell colored pencils, white acrylic for milk puddle and couple of scratches of oil pastel.
I think i am a late comer when it comes to Moleskine. Well, as they say, better late than never. Hehee. Just a doodle here.. why? Because i let my hand do the drawings instead of planning how it would end. Those two illos look like i am LOST! aha
Lost – Watercolour in a small Watercolour Moleskine
In Scotland, when we say someone is lost, we mean that their thoughts are in another place. This is our second eldest, Ewan, about to set off for his first day at school. The photograph, this is copied from, is dated 22nd August 1984. Ewan seems to be thinking about Winston Churchill’s quote that:
“It was at “The Little Lodge” I was first menaced with Education. The approach of a sinister figure described as “the Governess” was announced. Her arrival was fixed for a certain day. In order to prepare for this day Mrs. Everest produced a book called Reading Without Tears. It certainly did not justify its title in my case. I was made aware that before the Governess arrived I must be able to read without tears”. – From “My Early Life” – Churchill.
Ewan looks, in the photograph as if he is “menaced with education”. He is fighting to get control of his emotions. I wonder if he holds this against me and is plotting to put me into a home for old people?
