There’s often a temptation to keep doing something new, to keep chasing novelty, when you’re an artist. But really there’s nothing wrong with returning to the same subject or even the same drawing again and again to explore different ways of developing it.

    Fantastic, I love the white on the top drawing. So much energy! It’s good to return to a drawing or a theme.
