I've had a very long break.
One my brain seems intent on prolonging as the shock of actually having to use it again is still fresh, even at the end of my first week back at Camberwell.
However, despite having to readjust to the weekly routine, the 2nd year seems promising and fun. I see myself working harder this year. Even if that does sound like a cliche I think i genuinely want to prove something to myself. I want to feel like I've physically progressed in some form or other.
I'd love to see my intense way of working combine with the drawing styles of classicism. I want there to be a balance. Not just going one way or the other and feeling half accomplished.
The Fiction brief is 5 weeks long and that gives me ample opportunity to spend the next few weeks wisely and productively. I've already decided that I want my final outcome to be in the form of a book. My passion for writing and drawing will probably always draw me to the book format.
So yes, on with Lovecraft's Dunwich Horror I go.
Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn and all that good stuff.
