Dragonhill

This drawing is done in my small Moleskine sketchbook - the original is 18 by 14 centimetres, so quite small. The coins in the drawing are contemporary Danish currency.



The drawing grew from an impromptu outing to three steep artificial hills, the result of many tons of surplus earth from a large construction project being heaped up around some small ponds. The (accurate) map, coins and bus ticket (lower left corner) are there to show the mundane everyday aspect also present in adventure - the way it is anchored in acts and objects we deal with all the time.
Drawn using black and sanguine India ink pens.
