Preparation continues...

Next week I'll sit down with a human and her eye. The trickiest bit is learning how to throw light at a shiny reflective round surface (cornea) while illustrating the details behind it (iris). It's been frustrating with the occasional "ah-ha!" moment. Was also both inspiring (how pretty!) and deflating (aw crap, I'm just copying someone else's work!) to look at the work of Suren Manvelyan, whose work went viral a few years back, and continues to be shared. And not just human eyes, but amazing animal eye images too. I think the most I can do is reproduce work as good as Suren, and hopefully take it in a new direction.

But no time for ruminating until next Monday: I'm off to Craven this afternoon/evening; Riders tomorrow night; and who-knows-what Sunday.
