amyruffles asked: Hi Gemma, I'm a 3rd year fine art degree student, considering doing an MA in illustration afterwards. I absolutely adore your drawings. I was just wondering, with your visual diary pieces, do you plan out the compositions first, or do you just draw straight away with pen? Because they always look so perfect!! Thanks, Amy :)
Hi Amy. No, I don’t plan or pencil them out, I just draw straight onto the paper in a sort of stream-of-consciousness-y way.
(Here’s an example from my San Francisco diary)
whoisedhelmsreally asked: I adore your pic of (I assume) you lying dejected on the floor under a giant red "NOPE." In what context was that created? I simply love it.
It was winter.
