Words and lettering

I guess I’m not the only one for whom May is a busy month. I had hoped, however, to post sooner than this. I also had hoped to have more time for drawing. My drawing-a-day habit is interrupted once again, and I will have to kickstart myself to get back into it.

Here is something I did when I didn’t know what object to draw. My daughter wrote out one of my favorite poems in calligraphy for me —with her homemade calligraphy pen! I guess I was inspired by that. This lettering was drawn, then inked. It was also fun because I love words. I began with the word “dictionary” as it is printed on the cover of my handy-dandy pocket dictionary, and I just went on from there.
