a quiet masterclass

This little video is dizzyingly brilliant...I love watching these rare little insights into the illustrator's artful process.  I have been in love with Kat Macleod's enchanting ladies for some time, but I simply cannot get my head around how immediate her practice is.  It would be beyond me to dream up just one of these prints.  I'm also quite envious of all the colourful pots and tins and boxes she keeps producing (and am frightfully aware of how dull a video of my working practice would be. "Oh look, she's still drawing in black pen.  Can you believe that is her fifth cup of tea?" Maybe I should adopt some new materials...).

Note: Watching this video to the sound of 'Flight of the Bumble Bee' is entirely recommended.
