All my drawings up to this point have been flat and two-dimensional. Not in the witty I'm-joking-because-they're-pictures way, but in the way that they lack a sense of physical depth to the scene. It really pisses me off, and is one of the reasons I start disliking most of them as soon as they're finished. Today's (actually Tuesday's) drawing is my first real attempt at breaking out of that 2D habit I have. That and the other habit of drawing only the subject and background. I tried to make this more visually appealing by showing more happening than somebody/thing just standing there, and I think I did that.
In my mind, this is the first step in the journey out of The Gap.
