Spiraling away

I posted one of my original drawings on Etsy today.  It’s actually an older piece, inspired by a quote of a quote.  The quote as I first encountered it was in Caitlin Kiernan’s Threshold about extra-dimensional bogey beasts, and it was a quote taken from an Algernon Blackwood story called “The Willows”, also about extra-dimensional bogey beasts, although with a different tone and background.

The quote: “Our thoughts make spirals in their world . . .”

It inspired this mixed-media drawing, where I tried a large-scale stippling technique and added some minor collage for the spiraling eyes. Gold ink was washed over the nautilus shell in the background.

"Our thoughts make spirals . . ."
