I use mostly Pitt pens in size XS and S with some accents in size B, and a few touches with white gel pens. As you may have seen from a post earlier this week, I liked the pig walker enough that I later did a small watercolor that was similar. Click on any of these images for a closer view.

The quotes are:
Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in.
“Solitude is the soil in which genius is planted, creativity grows, and legends bloom; faith in oneself is the rain that cultivates a hero to endure the storm, and bare the genesis of a new world, a new forest.”
― Mike Norton
The last one says "things which enclose me" which is a reference to an EE Cummings poem, though not a direct quote.

And here is a peek at a few of them:

"You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you" -- I think this can apply to any creative endeavor.
"I have never listened to anyone who criticized my taste in space travel, sideshows, or gorillas. When this occurs, I pack up my dinosaurs and leave the room."
"Bees do have a smell, you know, and if they don't they should, for their feet are dusted with spices from a million flowers."
I am not done with the book yet. I will probably have some more snippits to share. I find the very best books on writing could probably equally well apply to drawing or painting - okay, maybe not Elements of Style, but certainly Bird by Bird and Writing Down the Bones.
Here are some more of my imaginary lands, inhabited by imaginary creatures, places I hope to visit one day.
In other news, I have added a few new listings to my Etsy Shop this weekend, just in time for holiday shopping.
