This started life as a very quick jewellery idea scrawled in the ideas book by my bed. I liked the image so much that I did a larger version in my current drawing book (I've been doing a series of small ink drawings in identical sketchbooks since last May). I also did this version on the envelope. While I like both of the later versions well enough, neither has quite the same energy and verve of the quickly dashed off original. That happens sometimes - the thing you do without really thinking has all the energy. One of the important things in making art is to think deeply about what you make whilst still keeping that original freshness.
