The Friday Archives

This image is freaky

Scanning fabric and then ink jet print onto water colour paper then using pencil - loads of fun.

It was drawn back in 2006 by request from one of my midwives for a poster she was wanting to put together - I did three drawings in all - but she didn't use any in the end - too bazaar I guess. That is one pregnant belly - it is a wonder she is standing up, let alone smiling.

You can see the others and wonder in this pregnant drawing freakishness here and here

Pencil Drawings & Utopia

Have been enjoying myself this week doing some pencil drawings - I haven't really done much of this since the birth of my second child. I have been enjoying my new ipod while drawing and listening to a lot of podcasts from Radio National, Classical ABC and also RRR. This week I listend to

Breakfast with John Gray who talked about how our society is hooked on Utopia (I think it is a law to always write Utopia with a capital U) and thinking about my recent drawings and be they about child birth and children I got reflecting (in that special quiet time during the drive home from the supermarket) that my drawings arent really capturing my emotion of the process of birth - especially my extreme fear and that I am really holding tight onto my Utopian view of childbirth - hmmm think I might need an evening with a philospher to sort me out on this one.
