Watched 6 hours of season 2 of Fargo last night. I have just one episode left, but while watching and listening I whipped this out. I’ve done crazy elaborate drawings in the past but this one just fell out of me. It feels good to be back in the sketchbook fooling around.

Getting out my Old Standard 420 clay and will begin a new “Sanctity” with more well worked cathedral forms. This should be fun. The initial version of sanctity sits vigil over our home and is a very peaceful figure.

There have been several effects I’ve been wishing to explore, and the “mother” project may give me the framework for exploring this.
