A reorganisation of my sketchbook was something I realised I needed when I felt nothing but dread to work in it. A sketchbook is how I develop my ideas, and lay them out to a viewer for them to see, how I work through different areas of consideration, and in pencil, I find a versatile and evocative method of expressing myself (with the occasional ink drawing thrown in). In doing this, I needed to gain focus, and this was aided by a tutorial. It featured information which was not always the easiest to hear, and I felt contained a combination of advice I wanted to pursue, and that which I did not. Nonetheless, it became the source of research into the influencer and Icon, Leigh Bowery. His attitude, his appearance, his morals, his art, all drew speculation and interest, and his seemless acceptance of art and fashion as a united medium, is something I can see is clear to me. I want to say something in my work, speak of our relationship to Nature, and to our Future, and the embrace of Fashion as Art, is part of this process. While the tutorial initially knocked me back, my drawings seeming ignored, or worse- unworthy of comment, I took some time to process it, think about of the criticism will take me further in the direction I want to pursue, and overall, I am glad of it, even though it was not easy to hear at the time. Acting upon this reorganisation, the Moodboard will act as the grounding for my project and for me. It is not refined for a portfolio, or of delicate sensibility; it is raw and pressing and NOT for the faint of heart: Nothing I do is. From this, I felt the instinctive drive to continue and to work from my sketchbook, to press on and to once again allow my photographic research and sketching to guide me forwards. Here is the opportunity and the drive to go forward into my theme, and to truly push myself.
