Drawing - Pen & Ink Sketches
This is the first Illustration from the yet to be; self-published book, �The Leopard & the Clay�. The earth shudders into being.. as volcanoes like giant exhausts from tectonic engines expand the lands territory into the benign sea. In their wake a Garden of Eden arises warmed by an effervescent sun. Creation too awakes, yet the lines have not yet been distinctly drawn, as to what�s �alive� & what�s �inanimate�. All creation �lives� & communicates with one-another.
A rich pallet of primary colours exemplifies the innocence of the moment. A chaotic & frenzied line type adds a childlike quality. The landscape as depicted in the scene is actually taken from a photo of a rock pool near the artist�s family sea-side cottage, off the East Coast of Southern Africa. The highest �volcano� is perhaps a foot high in real life, of moulded granite pounded smooth by giant waves of Indian Ocean sea-spray.
