Artwork Description

This horrible pervert weed is all hands. He strangles all the prettiest flowers.

Please check out this detail shot. The scan didn't quite catch all the detail, here.

Great picture, the concept is very interesting. I'm feeling sorry for the beautiful flower, I will never look at a weed the way I did before.
This has a bit of Rackham style to it! your technique with ink is sublime.

Thanks for the advice! There's a little white conte on the flower, but it doesn't look like quite enough. (Can you see it at all?)

Maybe I'll try acrylic ink instead next time. Conte seems to be too faint and imprecise.

Maybe a little advice, it`s quite hard to make out the image Socar, if you added a little white chalk highlights I think that would do the trick...interesting take on a botanical subject ...

Thanks--glad you like it! Actually, I have a lot of stuff like this, but I just started submitting it recently, because it's only recently I've gotten my hands on a scanner. Smile

That's hilarious. So different from all your others stuff, I dind't think it was yours until I saw the name under the thumbnail. Very cool piece.

Art at its best.
