Transformation.

I always seem to keep coming back to this image. I even know where I keep the original little pencil sketch. It has been produced as a business card, a profile shot for my blog, prints at markets, all sorts of things. I think it may have first been drawn at least ten years ago, when I used to draw girls holding birds, girls holding fish, many repeat motifs that are still going strong today. Even back then there were birds and fish everywhere.



The image below is a similar story. Drawn, again around 10-15 years ago on a scrap piece of note paper, I kept it, scanned it, redrew it, printed it as an etching and even won a prize for the printed and framed etching. I wish I could show you the etching - I may have to search very hard for a copy.



This is why I try not to throw out any little scribbles I do - I never know what they will become.

Hi Sally!

Wonderful post! I agree, the top sketch is beautiful. I can see why you have produced it into many things. Thanks so much for your sweet visit! My crafty spring cleaning seems never-ending. I definitely saved my piles of sketches though. :)
