Don't mean to sound nosy, but how long does it take to make such detailed patterns? It's amazing! :love:

Thanks

For this particular series (which I did almost 20 years ago) it just took me around and hour and a half to complete each piece

I have had always the knack of carrying a small sketch book around to doodle on my free time

in the case of the the zodiac series, I did this while I was attending a national convention of student rights activists. the speeches were getting quite boring :)

Haha, I do that during school assemblies. Only I carry around a really big one. :D

If you're still working on the series, may I ask if you have ever thought of drawing cusps?

Sorry for the late reply

Cusps ... I did think about it but right now there is no inspiration running through me to create such a series

it's ok. :)

Yeah, I know what you mean. When you aren't inspired enough, it's hard to start or finish what you were working on. :(
