I just finished this new drawing. It was originally intended to be called Neume (see earlier post) but a different character emerged in my mind as I worked on it. I’ve added a few details for a closer look. This work will be for sale on my webstore shortly. If you are interested, hit me with an email or message.

This isn’t the drawing that I intended to create. I had a different idea but when I started to execute it, other ideas came to me and I decided to go with it. I will get back to the original idea at some point. For this piece, I used a .18 Rapidograph pen.

I stole the title from Michel de Montaigne but the drawing does not bear any relationship to his essay. It was simply a phrase that harmonized with what I wanted to convey with the drawing. At times like these I wish I had the skills and resources to realize the costume in cloth. Eiko Ishioka would have been fun to collaborate with! Alexander McQueen? Sigh.

Anyway, this piece is for sale in my shop. If you are interested, you can find it here.
