Today I thought I would share a few of my recent drawings with you all. I used black indian ink with a dip pen on cartridge paper. These works are inspired by the Greek Goddess of memory, Mnemosyne. They are also inspired by the Celtic God, Oden and his two ravens who would fly around the world and collect information for him, their names were Thought and Memory (seeing the theme yet).
Hope your all well and have a lovely weekend.
