Sometimes, much to my dismay, sketches turn out better than the final piece. Maybe it’s because the raw idea comes shining through, or the fact that suspension of disbelief is so present in sketches that they trump a polished painting, I don’t know. It’s something I struggle with daily, trying to capture the vitality of a sketch in the final. So, I thought I’d show some of the sketches I’ve done these past couple years for the book Ava and the Little Folk and just ideas I had lumbering around in my head. Hope you like them.
Hopefully not as much as my finals, though.
