I Want to be a Robot
My family have got really manly jobs they’re welders, steel fabricators, plumbers, electricians, miners and I’m educated in the arts and I’m a vegetarian!
The human part of me is really letting me down, it kind of feels like drawing has become a contact sport, and my body is in bits… nothing has taken a toll on my body like this project.
I thought ‘right okay, man up, make a decision’, so I went into school and asked for an unpaid sabbatical, re-mortgaged the house, took the year off and it was the best decision I’d ever made.
If I can pick it up and rub it and it doesn’t disintegrate, then I’m going to draw it.
Everything regardless of size would have equal importance.
I thought it’d be great if my 'drawing a day book' for 2014 was going to be all the items from my grandfather’s tool shed.
