This is the second drawing from my idea of a drawing representing each month of the year. While I was drawing this particular picture I was listening to Stephen Kings Movie "Tommy Knockers", every time I look at it I think about that movie. Anyone else out there do the same thing - remember what you were listening to when you were working on a certain piece?
When I draw I start by sketching the basic design out in a light pencil, using circle templets, a compass and a ruler. Once I have the basic design drawn done I get to do my favorite thing - use ink to draw the lines I want to keep and to create my little patterns. It measures 6" x 9", it's a bit smaller that the other drawings on this blog so far.
My family had had a hard couple of years with our health and I am finally able to sit down again and start to draw starting Dec. 2009. I had posted some of my pictures on my Flickr account (under l.stoner) and I got a lot of possitive feed back. This is my first drawing like this one in about 2 years. This pictures measures 10 1/2" x 8 1/2"

This line drawing is 10 1/2" x 8 1/2". I was now starting to thing about other shapes getting a little pattern added to them, so why not try a square? This is another one of my drawings that I had hidden from friends and family thinking that people wouldn't like them. This is the first time I have shown this drawing on line. I had finished this one in November 2008.
I decided to get my old school pens out and start drawing again. I made many of these drawings of a circle in a circle and adding some of my patterns in between the lines. If you look close you'll see that each of the circles are a little off set from the other circles. I hid these drawings from friends thinking they were just something I would like and no one else. I was thrilled to discovered on the internet, there were other artist out there that enjoyed making these little doodles too.
