    The detail is amazing, Ethan! I know what you mean about the eyes and hands forgetting the skill, I'm right there with you. Thank you for sharing these.

    Isn't it great that so many of us poets are visual artists as well? These are beautiful Ethan, in the detail and texture especially.

    These are awesome! I used to work with pens a long time ago, got a new set of Koh-i-noor Rapidograph pens for Christmas but haven't broke them out yet. I may do that soon.

    Thanks Guys, It's sad but true that age takes a toll. Not only could I not repeat these drawings, I can't, (without a stout pair of reading specs) see the work nor remember it!
    I can remember vaguely the chimp with a cigarette was for an article on addition. (the chimp was from a Chinese Zoo 'I think',) and had become addicted to tobacco, but like the drawings I can't remember the detail.

    Nice. I had a drawing teacher in art school that taught us with a similar detailed style. Took the class to the local zoo for several weeks of class too.

    Louisiana and not the fun part where everyone gors out "chootin' gaytahs"
    Perfect detailing. The drawings seem aluve with movement.

    Super cool! Did you sketch these out first or just draw them in ink?
    If your art doesn't push, you won't get any pull.
