Artist's description:

A lot of the time when I'm drawing I have to double check things. Any type of foreshortening requires spot on measurements and occasionally you come across people who are just a bit unusual. A small head or long legs can throw you and make you doubt the evidence of your eyes.

This man had spectacularly large hands so I found myself double and triple checking the way they related to nearby objects. The cup was not especially small.

This drawing uses a mix of media. For the transferred image I print out one of my digital photographs on an inkjet printer, place it face down onto a fine quality, heavyweight artpaper, soak the back in nail varnish remover and quickly pass it through an etching press. This pulls the pigments out of one paper and into the other, diffusing and mixing them as it does so. The effect throws up unexpected and sometimes spectacular combinations of colours. I then use fine point Faber Castell Pitt artists’ drawing pens for the line work.
