Flower Hand people

As a child I drew loads of these ‘flower hand people’ on post it notes using a green felt tip and black ink pen. The only reason I have such a strong memory of these drawings is because my parents thought they were great and my dad kept them and had them pinned on his office wall. Revisiting these I found the repetition fascinating and wanted to try and recreate them.

Turns out it is actually quite hard to draw like a child when you’ve spent most of your life trying to draw more realistically. Anyway I found it very relaxing and got into a rhythm.
