cold comfort [in twenty five drawings]

a change of scenery (or what i have seen-ery), an escape to the white wilderness of Antarctica… it seems a little remote, but relatively quiet… a few (twenty five thus far) quick sketches done over the course of a couple of days (in the evenings)… a fake journal, a bogus adventure, a hoax expedition… nothing is ever as it seems…

A5 sketchbook pages…

but wait, there’s more… three quick panoramic landscape sketches…

it’s always good to have a couple of sketchbooks when out in the field, so to speak… ten more sketches of the Antarctica landscape in a smaller A6 sketchbook…

i feel that i have only just begun to scratch the surface…

and the motivation, aside from feeling slightly out on a limb this week, is Mr Benn (going out through the in-ternet door)…

    I love this concept, Jazz – & greatly admire your dedication to drawing during the course of your ‘trip’…where might you visit when next you step through the portal, I wonder..?

    thank you for the comment…

    i do, as it happens, have some other locations in mind (thinking back to the virtual travels concept) and quite like the idea of re-presenting this in the nature of visual recordings, esp. when exhibited (or authenticated) within the spontaneity of ’sketching’ as opposed to the more laboured ‘painting from a photograph’…
