The Line Divine.
My intial attraction to art came from a few different places and one of those was the illustrations in antiquated books I read as a child. The line drawings of old have such power over me and I long to be as skilled in their production as the artists I grew up admiring. The ability to carve shadow from light and surround a subject in gradiated brilliance is one I have long respected. With that in mind I attempted to duplicate the style and present to you these paltry reproductions of far greater work. Harrie Wood and Orson Lowell were the originators of these images and any interested should look to them for wonderful examples of the mastery of line.
