AAD (Art a Day Project): Week 15

This week’s experiment was all about fairy tales (the original, super dark versions) and drawing in pen. My friends graciously let me use their images in this week’s drawings.

This was kind of a blast from the past for me. I used to draw stuff in pen like this all the time growing up – little doodles with a ton of tiny details. It really made me happy to be doing this again. And it inspired some new work, which I’ll post in another blog when I’ve finished it.
