Camera Sketchbook

I started this sketchbook as a bit of a drawing project. My parents and I were going through the attic and we saw this box of cameras. I immediately thought, “this will be the perfect subject for a drawing project”. I made a concertina sketchbook, you can find the video here! This was the perfect…

Thoughts on Lockdown

Lockdown sucked. Not just for me, but for everyone. I felt stuck with being inside all the time and of course not being able to see my friends.
