Daily Sketch 29/08/2010

Pencil on Cartridge Paper

Today’s daily sketch is the first fantasy sketch that I’ve done in a while. This is based on C.S. Lewis Narnia stories, I loved these books when I was a child although as I have grown older I have found it hard to see the books the way I did back then as they have so many hidden meanings that as children you ignore but as an adult you cannot.

Unlike my previous sketched this one is in A3, I thought I’d work larger than normal to make up for the last two days in which I didn’t get around to posting. On Friday I took my mother to Weston-Super-Mare and Ikea and didn’t get home until late in the evening when I had just about enough energy to fall into bed. Then yesterday I found myself nursing a very poorly rat who I was worried wouldn’t pull through but luckily with medicine, yoghurt and a day of being curled up in a blanket on my lap he appears to be pulling through, fingers crossed.


  1. I love this sketch! Very dynamic. C. S. Lewis' books have always been some of my favorites. I hope your rat is doing better :)

  2. Thanks :) I've now started a new painting with this as the starting point.

    Moniack the rat is now in perfect health... well he's no longer wheezing, there is absolutely nothing that can be done about his chronic thickness.
