Figure Drawing Without A Model

Winged flight must be humanity's oldest dream. In the myth of Icarus the feathers were stuck on with wax, a ploy clearly doomed to failure - for anatomical reasons, apart from any others. The human body has not evolved in such a way that viable wings can simply be tacked onto it. My solution would be more successful, although it would demand some drastic genetic manipulation.

Once the idea had taken hold I found the image quite fascinating, and I produced several large drawings on the theme.

There was nothing very serious about this, of course - my sketchbooks are full of such stuff. But, if you let your imagination play around with similarly fanciful ideas, it is all the more ready to get down to some real work when the need arises.
