I’ve been drawing lots of hands. Filling a sketchbook of hand drawings and exploring ideas around hands. I’ve always found them tricky to draw, especially for animation, so giving them some focus and practice, and getting complicated with them so it feels easy to simplify them, feels useful. Mostly these are observations of my own left hand, but sometimes I’ve gone in more imaginative directions. Hands are also the subject of some of the story writing I’ve been doing, so reflecting on them has been helpful for that too. I’ve been finding that leaving a sketchbook open means I’m much more likely to pick it back up and draw in it. An open book, an open invitation to keep drawing.
