I did some drawings for a collection of other people's words to be published by the end of the year.
Not all my drawings made the art director's cut so I'm parking the rejects here, with minimal explanation.
This one is after a painting in the National Gallery, Apollo and Daphne by Piero Del Pollaiuolo, circa 1470-80. I'm not expecting everyone to know the original or to care why I gave it Charlotte Proudman's hairdo. It's based on a Greek myth. Apollo's pursuit of Daphne was thwarted when she turned into a bay tree, Laurus nobilis.
Make up your own story for this one...
...and for this...
For this one I bought an ice cream from McDonald's and got change for a pound.
I tried another version of this using a hazard warning cone. Look, I'm not saying all these drawings were of usable quality or anything. Sometimes you need other people to warn you.
I don't want all drawings - mine or anyone else's - to have the instant clarity of 'CAUTION - WET FLOOR'. Nor do I expect even that message to be without veils of ambiguity.
