Look at the ego on this g.

The nineteenth century graphologists would have a heyday with that descender!  And Iím ďMesmerizedĒ  - but thatís eighteenth century - by those flourishes! Beautifully and humorously executed.

gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous, @Erica McPhee -- if I could draw an E and g like that I'd have lots of reasons to strut.

@AnasaziWrites - I love that image.  I might like to do a drawing from it sometime.  Would that be okay?

Today I started off thinking - "Hey, I've never drawn a picture of a peacock before; I love drawing birds; I bet that would be fun!"  (Also I had a long meeting to doodle through). Truth to tell, I kind of hate this drawing.  It's overworked and under-conceptualized, and I kind of got tired of it before I really figured out how I wanted to go about it.  Oh well.  We're all showing experimental work here.  It turns out that maybe I don't like peacocks as much as I thought I did.  I should have drawn a peahen.

@K-2
Of course.
I'll send you a little higher resolution image via email. Also, if you would like to see the whole buddha, I can send the full photo from which this image is a crop.

Thanks, Mike!  The full image would be great as well as the close up!

And in retrospect, I'm proud of the little shrimp.  And very much appreciate the kind thoughts about it from @tiffany.c.a and @AnasaziWrites   It's such a better drawing than this peacock!  Ego restored.

--yours, K

Very nice work K-2 , I always admire your Inky Drawing. Great visions and stories within very work.
