I think that the result – my work “Arena”, featured in a previous blog post – is decent, and at least I finished the second version to my satisfaction (always enough of a reward).
In between doing my regular cartooning, I also completed “Ladies of the Night” – again a picture which I am fairly content with.
Then I spent a month working on a piece but had to give up when the emerging picture was not looking good to me – and spending time on it began to feel like so much time wasted. With “In-Nemmiesa” I returned to the drawing
I like; the type of drawing I am eager to come back to and add upon at the end of a day’s work at the office. The evening winding down therapy session I might say…
I was looking at some older work and I came across “Blind Man’s Bluff” (above) dated 1989.
I did two versions of this work, both are sort of completed but neither one is good enough in my opinion.
So whereas in November I decided to give up gracefully on a drawing which wasn’t turning out quite as I wanted, this time (as I did in August) I will rework “Blind Man’s Buff” from scratch. Perhaps it will be third time lucky for this double failure…
I don’t know what inspired me to deal with the subject of sex for sale in such an in-yer-face manner but I suppose it still falls somewhere in my general idea of subjects which intrigue me; relationships, the human condition etc. I will stop here before I start to sound too damn arty farty for my liking.
