Blackwork Self Portrait by bewildered
Self portrait for the Gallery of Souls. When I am not drawing, I spend a lot of my time doing embroidery, especially blackwork. This is an attempt to translate the style of blackwork embroidery - simple linework with repeated geometric fillings - into a pen and ink drawing. So this is a drawing of an unfinished embroidery of me embroidering! I kept the background to a simple circular window to keep the blackwork effect looking clean.
