Illustration Friday: Obsession

Bibliophile. graphite, watercolor & acrylic ink on watercolor paper, 7 x 10", 2011.
It's another little drawing! Before I started this blog I was very uncomfortable with working on a smaller scale... I guess that's changed.

This week's theme for Illustration Friday is "obsession". I work at a library, so I see absolutely no problem with someone who has an obsession with books.

  1. It looks as if the books in the background form letters. I spent about a minute trying to decipher what they said before realizing there IS no hidden message. Once again very nice linework and great use of complimentary colors. You've got a pretty strong portfolio on here at this point!
