My mind wanders on a Friday afternoon drawing.

You may want to try drawing from life--pen drawings such as this actually go nowhere--just a bunch of overly black lines combined with overly light lines.

It seems with your literary-styled titles you're actually trying to say something but it's just getting lost in traffic. Look at some of the great pen and ink drawings of the past to see how they did it.

Great energy in this piece. It all looks like it's imploding and that's how my head feels sometimes. ;) I like the rhythm of sleek lines and broad lines.

I can't see how the first comment said "goes nowhere". I think it's really good! It's NOT two dimensional, it's three for sure. And the strangeness gives a sense of the fourth. It feels like it's pressing against upward boundaries. Definitely nice work!

Multiple dimensions appear.

I really like this piece. It has a lot of tension, and holds my interest. The darker portions make me think of wooden walls, but then they are so twisted and oddly arranged that it is intriguing.

reminds me of the old woodcuts but with an abstract attitude

Thank you all for your honest comments and your kind words. While some believe that pen and ink should be reserved for realism, I find it works very well in the abstract and other genres as well. Again, thank you all for taking the time to post. -dk
