Industrial Patterns 8 with Critters
During my stay in Massachusetts I was too busy to do much drawing but I managed to do a few doodles in my "industrial" theme. Michael, the husband of the Diptych Portrait Patron, is an expert in heavy industry such as coal and steel and he has a huge library of exciting books about trains, metalwork, refineries, mills, and all sorts of stuff I love. He's always happy to share his photo library with me so I get more inspiration. This doodle started out as an "Industrial Pattern" but some of the blast furnaces and girder assemblies took on a life of their own and became critters.
