Rescue

Thanks to all your suggestions and support, together with a bit of drawing around my wire photographs, I've been rescued from my creative block!

This is very beautiful. The lines and shapes play against each to create such an airy feeling of movement. Can't even imagine you with creative block!

Your creative blog is well and truly a thing of the past - what amazing illustrations! The first one brings to my mind a city early in the morning, with scraps of dreams still floating above the roofs.

Anairam said...

Oh my goodness! No, I DIDN'T mean that your blog is a thing of the past!! Your BLOCK! I mean your BLOCK!!

Ah, Nicky, this is brilliant! The discipline of the beautiful, intricate linework juxtaposed with the free floating colorful shapes is astounding! It certainly does feel like you have broken free. YAY!

Caroline said...

This is so creative - such a breath of fresh air - it's a floaty yet fiesta-like, if that makes any sense!!
