Mouse Dancer

Monotype, 5x7"
This is a monotype done using the subtractive method (inking a plate, then removing ink with Q-tips, brushes, etc. to create a drawing. I usually start with a rough idea for the subject, but the fun of monotypes is letting the ink patterns suggest form and shape.

"Hairstyle #1", Monotype, 5x5"
Here's a "just for fun" print I did yesterday. I started drawing this hairstyle on the inked plate and it took on a life of its own.
