|Concept collage / sketch for The Arrival, 2001, photocopy and pencil, A5|
From 15 years ago, one of my first concept 'sketches' for The Arrival in which I began by drawing over the top of a collection of photocopied pictures, mainly of migrants and refugees from different eras. At this stage I was not sure what kind of project this was in either style or narrative, just playing with images, such as this one, with a vague suggestion of 'serpents'. I still use this technique often now, albeit more digitally, starting with found images and evolving them over time via multiple drawings, ingesting other references along the way.
