to where things stay interesting

Sketches are my favourite part of the art process. Don’t get me wrong, I love a finished piece that exudes a confident vision which only comes from hours of getting every stroke or pixel just so. But the freewheeling excitement in sketches – where artists don’t hold back, don’t over-think, don’t censor – is hard to beat. Case in point: Wes Burt’s faces. It’s used on this page as a background, and when you see it in full on page 39, its explosion of distinct features, expressions, angles and lines all merge together to create a beautiful chaos.

It’s fun to push the boundaries until your image becomes absurd, with overabundant muscles and tattoos.” CHARMEUSE “I like to add graphic symbols to my compositions to inject more impact. There’s certainly something symbolic about this snake.” GUINEA PIG “I placed high saturation colour on the orange strip to make it stand out against the other images.” GUINEA PIG TATTOO “Here’s a rough design for some skin ink.

It can be difficult to see how they’d angle any food or ale in, but I feel a need to keep to a certain iconic look. Even if I’m tempted to festoon them in plaits, rings and trinkets, they end up pared down to that simplified look.” TROLL WITH HUGE TUSKS “Most of my sketching is very scrappy – a necessary evil – before…
