Recently, I got back into one of my favorite past-times: drawing… Especially drawing cartoon characters. I decided to try out a new medium as well – alcohol ink markers. Along with my drawing, I wanted to add a little poem to go with it. As I began doing this, I started to think about my next collection of poems that I want to publish too. My next collection of poems will be a combination of my poetry with art. The art will be both hand-drawn and my graphic art. I just thought I would share with those who are interested.
Below is one of my new cartoon drawings using alcohol ink markers and the short poem titled, “Inner Beauty.”
She's a classic natural beauty... Her flowing skirt falls past her knees. This beauty has intelligence, wit and a kind soul. Inner beauty- It should be what everyone sees.
