Shanty Mass Sketch
This is a quick sketch that I made a few years ago when I was thinking of doing a suspended sculpture that was to resemble a little shanty town community perched upon a floating bolder or planetoid. The original idea came to me when I was on holiday in Goa. I was swimming out to sea when I noticed an interesting seed pod floating past me. I picked it up and found that it had a small community of tiny crabs living upon it. They obviously thought that they had reached dry land and immediately proceeded to disembark onto my hand.
Unfortunately I seem to have scanned the drawing a bit crooked - I must rescan it some time.
