Ian Murphy sketchbook drawing

Jessica (from London area)   I am a textiles student, and I have been told to look at your drawings to help me improve my own work.  I really struggle with drawing and just do not know where to start.

To be honest with you Jessica, I get asked this question quite a lot.  I think when you are confident at drawing you just take the starting process for granted, but if not, those initial marks on a page can be quite daunting.  I am in the process of filming a studio video that will illustrate the way to begin an idea.  It starts from the looking stage through to the initial layout on the page.  I will let you know when it goes live.
