I guess I'm still alive

Just a little ballpoint pen sketch of my character Triad the Basenji.

Lyrics that inspired this picture, that are also the lyrics that inspired his "creation" so long ago…

"It took so long to remember just what happened.
I was so young and vestal then,
you know it hurt me,
but I'm breathing so I guess I'm still alive
even if signs seem to tell me otherwise."
~ Tool, "Prison Sex"

      Eeeeeee it makes me SO happy that you like him! Not many people really lean towards him, he's a less extravagant character I guess is the word I'm looking for? He's a pretty simple guy. So it means a lot! AND it means even more you like my pen sketches! They are my favorite thing to do. I love drawing in pen… cause if I mess up, well I gotta find a way to make it work. I'm WAY too much of a perfectionist, and drawing in pencil I just redo and redo and redo to the point I feel I make it too refined? Even some of my colored pieces start as pen sketches. Blah blah rambly sheltie alert! I <3 you lots and appreciate all your comments on my arts!
