memoirs, art and fragments by Thomas Milner

Black beaks

I start drawing curved

Slanting lines across the page

Curved avian beaks

Stabbing downwards

Feeling vicious

Fair enough

Keep it simple

Good design

STAGE 1

STAGE 1

 

Keep it simple

No colour-riot

4 shades max

 

STAGE 2

STAGE 2

And black

Black beaks

Picking pecking

Stabbing down

Into the heart

Of darkness

  2. I like those poems, Thomas – something about the black curved beaks. And the paintings – though the background is a bit happy for a heart of darkness, maybe.
