continuing from the previous post. it is probably more prudent from the marketing perspective to not show less-than-perfect studies, but so what. i thought it might be interesting to show a bit how themes develop, and in all my themes there are a fair percentage of works that don't `work' enough on the levels in which i'm interested.

from this point on the format in the series is no longer only a4 (21 x 30 cm).

thank you tt for your comment, it's always nice to see that people notice what's been put up.

in the series, this is the moment where i'm starting to get some hang of where i want to go. the latest works (to follow) have something special for which i'm still searching in these three drawings.

(so stay tuned, is the commercial submessage ;-) )
