Beginner

Illustration Friday
You can’t even begin to begin if you can’t paddle.

“A man ceases to be a beginner…. and becomes a master….when he has learned that he is going to be a beginner all his life.”  Robin G. Collingwood

These surf studies were also my beginning thumbnail sketches for a study brief: ‘CD Graphics – Contemporary surf culture’. For the final prototype (‘In The Curl’ Design Page) I used some of the many photographs I’d taken at Dreamtime Beach, Sharpes and Lennox Head. The paddling figure became ‘Paddlin’ Out Productions’ logo.

  3. Lovely fluent lines Sue, I especially like the surfer closest to the pencil.

  4. Your sketches are really good: there is so much speed in them.
    Very professional.
