Last Friday I decided to get back to doing some ‘Nao’ artwork… I spent the afternoon drawing up Gregory’s dream, I drew it in the kinda style that you’ve seen already, like in the Pg.8 Underground post below. By the end of the day I was kinda pleased with the actual drawing but something didn’t feel right. Over the weekend I kept thinking about it and it started to get me down… I couldn’t get in early enough on Monday, determined to throw that one out & start again… but I still wasn’t sure how to tackle it. Then the moment I arrived in the studio I spotted the Kuniyoshi book and I realised it’d be great to do it in a similar Ukiyo-e, ‘Floating World’ style. Then it all happened really quickly… I drew it up in a day & then coloured it the next and now I’m really pleased with it.
Sorry for not posting the whole picture… I really want to hold this one back until we can all buy it in our local bookstore….
