Lamplighter Sketch

New Work — November 2019

A new lamplighter sketch that I started this a few months ago and dusted off and reworked over the last few nights. I spent so much time growing up trying to forcibly define a drawing style, and now I feel like I can’t really break away from it. Thinking back, I was desperate for a style so that I could draw faster, more reliably, more consistently, and now I feel like I spend so much extra energy fighting against the techniques I’ve gradually developed that I am not saving any time or any effort at all.
