Illustration Friday: Simple

I am submitting a piece for Illustration Friday tonight for the first time. This week's theme is "Simple". I thought about how I would illustrate this theme for a long time. OK, well, it was only for a couple of hours, actually, but that's a long time for me. I hope you enjoy my drawing.

so much to look at and savor in this "simple" drawing. I love all the different tensions and weights...the paper, the hand, the string. complex.

i think you drew the opposite of simple. such a detailed hand requires a master pencilist!

There is probably nothing more pure in art than simple (heh) pencil rendering.

What anonymous said - exquisite.

Glad you found IF!
