Ah London.. How I missed you and your unbelievably crowded tube trains! I'm currently back at Nexus this week storyboarding so it's been a good chance to do some underground sketches.
I've been going through a bad-patch recently and have pretty much filled an entire sketchbook with nothing but false-starts. I know that sometimes that's just the way it goes but when they start to pile up it doesn't feel good. I think I've figured out the problem though, I've drained all the fun out of sketching and been over-analysing my drawings too much.
It's good to be aware of why something didn't work and to try and build on it but too much analysis and the suddenly the pressure is on for every sketch to be perfect (which they very rarely are). So today I decided to switch off and just enjoy drawing.
