The Adventures of Pip











All Marker and Ink on Paper

My friend Dewi sent me some old Enid Blyton books for my birthday, one was a red pretend leather bound one called "The Adventures of Pip", I wasn't too keen on the story but I really liked the look of the book [hey that rhymes] so I started drawing in it [the main reasoning been the idea of using the book as a symbol for childhood innocence] I began to develop the drawings of the clown - along with my Mam's Welsh Lady Doll and my Rocking Horse from when I was a kid. Whilst sat drawing I noticed that the Clown's hair was beginning to resemble waves, which I then started to work into the sketches, it was this that prompted the papercuts...
