Day 230 Ink Brush.

A time to play, no direction or preconceived
subject matter. Letting the ink and line flow.

Thanks for visiting.

Day 229. Nocturnal Ink Emission

It has been sometime since I've done an ink brush drawing.
My old Kuretake brush lost its tip a couple of months back, and
I finally put on the replacement brush. I should have done it sooner.

Last night was a reminder of how seductive a simple line can be.

A liquid line that blooms and whithers, like flowers and smoke,
a midnight sky and forgotten dreams.
This is a heart that pumps ink.
Follow its rhythm, feel it course through the veins.
Let it out as simple black marks on paper.

Let it live and breath.

Day 228. Cut Paper.

My days at Stephen Avenue are winding down. Rain has put
a damper on sales. I've had a couple of days to play with
new designs. Latest ones are constructed without glue.

Thanks for visiting.
