I made my sketchbook by hand and the paper I chose was somewhat thin. This allows for the luscious ghost lines to show through from the other side of the page. I thought about editing them out, but I’ve always enjoyed the imperfections of the artist’s sketchbook and I decided that they lend a certain authenticity to the image.
This is the first of the Flying Heart Family. Since this sketch flying hearts keep showing up in my drawings. I’m not sure what that electric kelp on the bottom is, but I love the texture.
