A draft is generally understood as the preliminary outline of an idea - a text or image that by its nature is malleable and subject to change through a series of adjustments. Where drawing is concerned the term implies developmental phases, including aspects of abstraction in the making of plans, diagrams, signs and notations. Perhaps, the term can even, by extension, be used to articulate ideas of encoded behaviours; it signals how a sense of emergence hovers around the act and concept of drawing, the potential for gaining access to imagined ideas or extracting directly from actual situations; it suggests multiple ways that through drawing it is possible to create physical evidence of both external and embodied circumstances.
