I have been drawing the places I visit in pocket sketch books for 25 years. There are now 40 books with over two and a half thousand drawings. Like extracts from a diary, this is a selection.

Recently I started making another kind of sketch using freely arranged powder and the rock it came from. These exist momentarily and become photographic sketches (see Dustworks).
