Years ago, I worked a set of drawings known collectively as "Terrorists Gone Wild". I recently had a big brain dump of new imagery based on some of the same ideas. I wanted a break from Pirates and Fairy Tales for awhile, and to get back to Pen and Ink. I realized while working on this drawing how much I missed using quill pens and ink. I also remembered my fondness for seeing blue-line underdrawings on comic pen and ink drawings. I always liked the look of the underdrawing with the ink more than the final reproduced image, where the blue line would drop out. I used red pencil for this drawing,and wanted to make sure its lines stayed around as part of the final composition.
Oh yea, and the title of this piece is "CELEBRATION".
