Action Drawing by Marie Gordon

Alright so, this is the start of a self initiated project to illustrate the alphabet over the next coming weeks. The chosen words will be of loose relevance to an action (ah ha! see what I did there) I've done that week. I'll try tie them all into something interesting to look at, but I'm sure that a few tedious links will crop up along the way. My aim is to approve my rusty photoshop and illustrator skills along the way, as well as, getting back into the swing of drawing for fun, which I haven't done for a while.

Action; the fact or process of doing something, typically to achieve a aim
In my case that action (the act of drawing this particular piece) was an example of that age old enemy procrastination. While at my desk, glued to the seat, with a strict interneting ban in place, this word kept running around my brain, until, it became the aim. I'll do the other, more urgent drawing tomorrow :)

Well there ya go, here're the first one. Special thanks to my lovely brother David who talked me through editing this one and reminded me about the joyous plethora of youtube tutorials explaining how to do everything.
