The Pen Is Mightier

I have mentioned before that I enjoy making collages once in a while. Well, little known fact, I also like ink drawings. Maybe it was because I liked reading Shel Silverstein’s Where The Sidewalk Ends when I was younger or maybe it’s just because it is easy and fun to do when you are bored.

The first was done in my high school art class (2008 or 2007) for “Meadowbrook Way.” The second is on the back of a note card containing bibliographical information from a history paper of sorts. The third is constructed from boredom on notebook paper. The fourth is a random, late-night creation.

They are so cool! Keep it up!

If nothing else pans out in life I am pretty sure you could make some good money doing these in henna on tourists backs on the beach someday.....

I need skills that could be put to use on a beach. Beside sweeping.
Wait- I'd do that too.

I love your pictures. The butterfly one is so cool!

I do some mean mini-braids too, so I'll keep that in mind as a fall-back.

The butterfly one if one of my favorites as well. It's complete with a super secret message...but all of them are, so its not that rare.
