Bold lines, be my friend



To reveal something about myself as an artist, I'll tell you that I've always appreciated a fine line. I like to sketch, like to see lines build upon each other, and I like the subtlety of a thin line of ink.  A Micron 005 pen has been my friend for a long time.  I was happy with the style of Picasso's Inspiration quote from my last post, but realized that it didn't translate as well when scanned in and posted online. The original drawing looked much better, if I do say so myself. So, here I am trying to be bolder, using thicker pens... I tried the script "Boldness" first, then decided that "Boldness" should be a bolder style and "Friend" should be more friendly, so I drew the second version.
