watching the rising moon

29 August 2011. Gel pen on paper.

I drew this during my trip to Queensland, while sitting on the balcony of our holiday apartment, and as I tried desperately to ignore the couple swimming in the pool below us. As the moon rose, I found my imagination going wild as I observed the shifting patterns of clouds and shadows passing across the glowing orb. Well, I guess technically it doesn’t really glow because it’s not self-illuminating, it merely reflects sunlight. But… let’s not get pedantic here.
