Drawn on 300gsm A4 watercolour paper over a year ago – i began painting it with water colours but could not achieve the colours/finishes that I wanted so I then painted/coloured it in photoshop before I was satisfied with the look.
I originally had this image in my head when I was about 16, writing bad teenage poetry. the image had a poem that went with it. The poem is on a scap of paper somewhere but the image has always remained with me. The poem rambled on about broken and rusted, mismatched parts that just kept ticking and finished with the title – My heart is in your hands, keep it safe.
