Eighteen years ago. I was in Labour with my daughter Coco. It lasted around twenty four hours and ended with a hospital caesarean, under general anaesthetic. The birth had been planned at home and to take my mind off things, I continued doing design roughs for my film The Queen’s Monastery, which was contracted to begin that very day.
Here are two of my labour drawings. Very wobbly and completely off character as you can see.
The Queen’s Monastery was a dream project a once in a life time opportunity and everything about it fitted neatly into place.
But it’s a long story, which I will continue in my next blog.
