The Ark is a recurring theme in my sketchbooks.” THE MIGHTY THOR “There’s always place for some mythology in my pages, I love the combination of ridiculously large vehicles being drawn by small animals.” “I’m not a religious man, I only like to draw animals on boats just for a variation from drawing…

craww

Artist PROFILE Craww Self-taught and a habitual doodler, Craww turned to his sketchbook once he started over-thinking his paintings. “I was getting very hung up on colour, subject matter and composition,” he says, “and although it’s good to keep questioning what you’re doing, maybe not to the point that you stop doing anything at all!” He lives and works in Sheffield, in the north of England. www.craww.com SOON I’LL LET YOU GO “I wanted to create a connection between the bird and the figure. And for once, the bird isn’t a crow!” GOLDEN “Drawn somewhere over Greenland I think, while scrunched up in an economy seat, balancing in-flight food on one knee and a moleskin on the other.
