Seashell pen and ink squiggle drawing


A seashell is rarely simple.  I enjoy the more complex, spiral forms of seashells than the bowl shaped shells.  I find that the state of mind, almost a trance state, that is required of me to complete these squiggle drawings is more difficult when I can’t travel into the shell to explore its twists and turns.  That said, I am committed to drawing at least a half dozen of these bowl shaped shells.

Drawn with my fine nib Parker 21 fountain pen and Noodler’s Polar Brown ink.
