Come On In And Cool Off!


    In the mid 1980's I was recovering from a hospital stay, and was bored. Then I came across a Victorian calligraphy pen with several nibs.

    So, I did the only logical thing that I could think of at the time, and bought a bottle of ink, grabbed a handful of old papers that had print on one side, and began amusing myself by copying the style of line drawings from last century; the age of the pen itself!

    I taught myself to dip the pen repeatedly (It was not the type of pen that you filled) and get the even lines that I needed; where I wanted them!

    As you can see, I hadn't really gotten it down yet in this drawing; but after moving up the state, this early effort was one of the few to have survived.

    Unfortunately, in order to help with the loading of this drawing I had to crop most of the ocean and iceberg; not to mention reducing the pixels, but you can see the basic idea all the same.

    Anyway, for those of you sweltering in the heat currently, I hope that this helps you to cool off, if just a little! :)
