7th January

DP 07

This drawing obviously got rained on during its journey. The ink was pristine when I posted it but it came back with smudgy inky raindrops added. One of the valuable things about this project for me is that it's forcing me to be less precious about my drawing. It's hard to be uptight about what you've drawn when you're sticking it in a letterbox and it's being run through a machine and stuffed in various postbags. The envelopes come back smudged, marked, creased or sometimes even a bit embossed if the object inside is heavily textured. I like those changes, it feels quite freeing to me.
