Witty quote

Taking time to doodle

I've been busy writing a novel again - go here to read - I'm writing the final chapter now, but took time to draw this evening: yet another abstract line drawing. I found a name for the art form - or rather, borrowed: "INK ART", Below is the newest attempt. The scan was not very good. I retraced some of the orange twirls, but a few spaces coloured orange in the design do not show up. However, retouching depends on spaces being completely enclosed, otherwise the space around is flooded, so I didn't retouch those bits. It would have taken too long to retouch the lines.

Below my drawing is a video by a really good line artist. I skipped the long bit about his sandwich! I'm going to try to start a new drawing like he did, but I won't copy it, of course.
