MOBY-DICK, Page 436

Title: The skeleton dimensions I shall now proceed to set down are copied verbatim from my right arm, where I had them tattooed; as in my wild wanderings at that period, there was no other secure way of preserving such valuable statistics.

  1. Loved the arms being the negetive space.

  2. Thank you Titus. Oddly enough, this piece began as some lunchtime sketching with a ballpoint pen, while at my desk. As I worked the lines round and round, slowly defining the hands to see if that approach would work, I started to like what I saw. In the end, I finished the "sketch" and that became the final piece you see here.
