Jousting for a PhD
Pencil on paper, 10 x 10 inch – Fiona Mearon Copyright 2018
A friend asked me to draw this for the cover of her PhD. It was a pleasure to help her after her amazing support in editing my first children’s book, “Dragon Brothers – Let The Adventure Begin” (out by Jan 2019). After years of painting I forgot how wonderful pencil drawing can be when you use a few shades and a light touch. I might even be inspired now to go back to drawing for a while and fill up yet another sketchbook.
Artist note: Eraser’s that look great that you can pump out of a pencil stick don’t work nearly as well as your favorite chunky cheap eraser.
