Foetuses are a rather obvious place to start as an emblem of new beginnings, but start there I shall. The drawing above is in the process of being transferred to a wood engraving block and will, I think, be surrounded by some text.

Over the last few months I’ve been thinking on and off about beginnings and endings, birth and death, and how development is affected by external factors.
