I really wasn’t in an ugly mood when I drew this, and it doesn’t really reflect my feelings at all. Though I suppose it does say something about my views on human nature.
This was a ‘save’ in my Rhodiarama soft cover where I had experimented with some Tombow Dual Brush, Fudenosuke and Mono pens. I didn’t have any real idea of what I wanted, other than that I was going to create the negative shape of a woman.
As so often happens, once I was part of the way done, I saw something. In this case, I was creating the outline of the woman, but the white streaks made me think of a skeleton. That made me see this woman, and the strange doggerel popped into my head after that. My brain just works this way. It was the art that was feeling ugly – not me. Honest.
I’ll be posting a step-by-step challenge for the Zentangle All Around Facebook group using this method on August 2.
