Fisherman ...


Having watched lots of fishermen going in and out of the little harbours in all the seaside villages we have visited in Cornwall, I've for a long time wanted to do a project based on some kind of fisherman-with-a-big-beard narrative. I still don't know what to make of it, but I thought I'd start by geting the fisherman image out of my head. Post assessment, I was given feedback that I worked best with shapes, and needed to break away from the use of lines to explain things. As an excercise, I thought I'd re-do my fisherman image as cut shapes. All experiments and work-in-progress ...

If any of you have or have access to a short, sweet, fisherman story that I could illustrate - would really appreciate hearing about it ...

Your fisherman is soo cute. You can think of a story based on " Give man a fish, he lives for a day. Teach man to fish, he lives forever " Good luck. Ammu
