Some clown drove past and yelled at me suggesting I stop sketching. I showed him my splinted finger. The ink is not waterproof so the wash runs have to be calculated …. or not.

I’ve been wanting to have a go at this for a while now. Its done with pen, ink and pencil. Rodin would roll in his grave but I’m happy with it.

Planar Squiggles © Tim Mooney 2011

I was reading an essay on perspective drawing which I very much enjoy. So I started with the top circle (planar reference lines) and finished with all the squiggles. Everything else happened in between. There are some excellent books on learning drawing on the net. All you have to do is get one and start.
