The Birthday Book - Page25 by SalHunter The Birthday Book - Page25 by SalHunter
(Nothing is Perfect)

In 2009, I was given a little drawing book for my birthday ... it's a spiral bound sketch book with a pretty cover. Not something I would buy for myself ... but a welcome gift none the less. I decided to fill it with little sketches and drawings as a stream of consciousness.

This is page 25 ... HB and 2B pencil ... about 7 cms by 14 cms ... 10 days.

This is the one that caused me to panic. You can probably tell that there is a gaping hole in the composition ... unfortunately the drawing went so badly that I erased an area and tried to fix it. This is no longer technically a stream of consciousness ... it is a consciously rescued drawing and so this is a lesson to me that Nothing can ever be perfect ... hence it's title above.

That book has really taken on some pricelessness by now! :faint:

Oh I don't know about its value but I do know it is one exciting yet difficult project ... Drawing a page a month in a book is actually harder than it sounds

This gives me the impression of reaching very deep into ones soul searching for something lost or a direction that needs to searched to be understood -- Ok a bit deep even for me but that was the thought when I viewed this awesome work :shrug:

Excellent save :thumbsup:
