Here is the start of this piece, due to the scale and the space currently available to me the reproduction isn't great quality, but i endeavour to get some better examples up on here asap. I like the style iv used to draw these, where parts are less detailed or totally undone which contrasts to the areas of high detail. I like the distance between the figures but i think they could also work if they were all connected as if they were a network of body parts?

I wondered where i could take my work next, there is definitely something sexual about the image of 2 men from one face. I feel that whilst working with these warped faces the compositions are much more successful when there is more that 1 body. We can make a link from these sexual images to the poem that influenced this project from the start. The key line to this poem being 'We have no time to stand and stare'. My work perhaps suggests that society and culture changes so fast and so dramatically in terms of what is considered acceptable that we have no time to dwell upon agitational subjects such as the modern acceptance of gay/straight equality?
I think this raw display of complicated and varying sexuality could be something to concentrate upon within my work. I hope that these images are not overly comfortable to the eye of the viewer.
Here is the start of my next venture...

I've finally finished this drawing, and have also produced a quick stop frame animation of its gradual growth. Hopefully this will lead onto other similar studies. I was rather suprised at how enjoyable working to this large scale was, as i am often guilty of becoming sketchbook bound! I would like to try out the same concept with other faces/bodies as i am aware that these will be exhibited, ithink the large scale would look impressive in my graduation show and our following London show 'BRINK'.
WATCH THE ANIMATION HERE...
Here is a shot from the animation which shows the entire piece...
In this piece the actual image is in brown and white.
I am pleased with the way in which the image developed, i took inspiration for
this piece from a previous piece of work of mine. This is the following image, it shows a human form but the way the piece is less detailed or perhaps unfinished in places makes the image somewhat ambiguous- is this a male or female? Are they sleeping or are they dead? I was keen to translate this style onto my most recent work and so i made the decision to leave parts in a less finished state as i was drawing.
