Haiku book

I am illustrating a collection of haiku by friend and poet Hamish Ironside. At present I am uncertain as to whether the work I am generating is preparatory or finished. It feels like a distraction to worry either way, though. I’m pleased with the freshness of the drawing. I had begun working on this project a few months ago and stupidly didn’t finish it in one deliberate swoop. So now I find myself ambling around pictures which already seem consigned to history, tracing new thoughts over old ones. In all honesty, this is not such bad practice. It feels good working in tandem with a younger self, realising where he went wrong and where I could learn…

Here’s one new drawing and I’ll leave it at that.
