For the ArtAscent competition I had ideas of creating a series of small pieces in pencil, coloured pencil and watercolour of strange, fictional (maybe mythology-inspired) creatures which, rather than drawn to be idealised, majestic and beautiful, instead look ugly, wrinkled, nocturnal... sort of like 'rejected' fantasy creatures. The sorts that you might find huddled in a cave, or under a rock, or burrowed underground. One might be hideous, but vulnerable and weak - the other might be huge and frightening, but also isolated. Exploring the idea of hinting at an emotive, sympathetic spark hidden in unpleasant or frightening creatures appeals to me.
The deadline isn't until June, so these are all mainly drafts, initial ideas and works in progress.
