I should n’t like it but I do!

One is not supposed to like one’s own work and,┬áin general, I don’t like my own drawings. This may be because I know I can do better. It’s a phrase that teachers always used to use on me all those years ago at school. ” Davies, you know you can do better”. There was a nub of truth and there still is. Or perhaps I’m suffering from “post school traumatic teacher disorder”. Whatever it is, it’s stayed with me.

Now here’s a drawing that I should n’t like. Looks like a splodge to some. But I like it a lot. It has the advantage of not being done by me. I think it is sophisticated and elegant in a way my own drawings never are. Mine are supposed to be funny, this is obviously not. I love it.
