Pollen, 2019, ink on paper, 12″ x 9″

Pollen is a new drawing (personal work) that I finished towards the end of January. It was done using .13 & .18 Rotring Rapidograph pens. The image below is a quick iPhone shot of a new work in progress called Hearts Divided. I’m hoping to get it done in the next few weeks, working on it between other things. The piece is 17″ x 14,” ink on archival quality illustration board.

On the writing front, I’m in the middle of a full revision of my latest novel The Tailor of Echoes. My goal is to have it completed by the end of March.

Well, March was busier than expected and as a result I didn’t have a chance to do any “work in progress” shots on this drawing. If you are unfamiliar with the meaning of panspermia you can read about it here. Obviously, I have taken some artistic license. The weird hand is a biographical reference. Many years ago, in northern Ontario, I found what I thought was a mole hand. Paw is probably the correct term. Thinking back, it was probably a snapping turtle appendage. I was a quasi Lynchian moment. Hope you like this piece.
