TOTAL CHAOS FOREVERMONTH: John Donne

This is, I suspect, my most beautiful drawing yet. Do you like th'Emperours stripey ermine? Do you like his anty lov'd snake, that dips a serpent tongue into the opening of an anthill? This evocative line was lewdly ripped from "The Calme"--I'll invert your fable, John Donne!

Irony: I thought that when I finally got a drawing tablet, I would spend less time on drawings; I would have more control over the pen, I reasoned, and wouldn't waste so much time erasing and redrafting. In fact, I take considerably longer now, because I have so many more brush options at my disposal. So, sorry about that, but aren't the results more awesome to the millionth power?

Also, maybe you will send us some poems for RealPoetik? Write to me & I'll send details.

I was all set to respond wittily and thankfully, Ana, when I noticed the MINIATURE DOG you are giving suck to in that picture! He leaves me speechless, except to say I will email you soon.

You are a beautiful drawing! I especially like the crosshatching in your hair.
