52 Fridays - The Headless Troll King of the Free Flat Land


Greetings friends and welcome to another happy Friday! This week's drawing is an original piece I call, "The Headless Troll King of the Free Flat Land". I used a technique of randomness beginning with a couple of drops of brown India ink on paper charged with clean water. I let it dry and then looked at it from all angles, seeing different things. A process not unlike looking for shapes in clouds. This strange troll, orc thing was what I found. Somebody call a psychiatrist! I enjoy drawing from real life objects (or photos thereof), but part of that exercise is to add layers to the compost pile; build a vocabulary of mystery to articulate my own thang. 

See you next week!
