I let the music move me
Hello again whoever you are! I am writing briefly to share some of the incredible energy I have had drawing these generals and soldiers with ball point pen. I am currently drawing General Lew Wallace - who so happened wrote Ben Hur! Who knew? Not me until I happened to have a conversation with a friend about what I was drawing currently. Anyway, back to the music... sometimes I really REALLY like to work in silence , but I am finding that with the freedom of line I am drawing with, the music I listen to has a dramatic effect on where the tip of my pen flies while making these drawings. It's just so much fun to let it fly and have my lines be steered by rhythm, strings, screams and soulful crooning.
