EDMs 8, 11, 37
I had wanted to draw these simple, everyday items but each in itself seemed a little boring. Not much there to make a composition out of. I decided to group some of the previous challenges together, to see if I could find some common ground about the individual items. These seemed to me to belong together as Accoutrements of Personal Satisfaction, each of them designed to make life a little easier on a daily basis. How many of us really take the time to appreciate how our glasses make the world bright and focussed, how our keys keep our "stuff" safe, how our watch keeps us on track and responsible to those who rely on us. This is a celebration of the quotidian, an homage to the ordinary.
