I believe I posted the top half of this image way back when I started this blog. I have been so busy with commissions over the last year that haven't done much more to this project, but this last week I went back and looked at it. I had doubts about how I could make it interesting, it always felt a little self indulgent. I enjoyed imagining the faces and clothes of my ancestors, I had dates of birth, marriages, deaths and the occasional will, so drawing them was a way to make them more real to me - I just wasn't sure if any of this would be interesting to any one else. I think these uncertainty's took the wind of out my sails. I'd like to go back to it, but I think in order to have the confidence to take it forward it needs a completely new approach.
