I’ve been reading a fair amount of poetry later, mostly for class, but also revisiting some old favorites; one being Christina Rossetti’s pre-Raphaelite jewel, Goblin Market (Link Here).
This little graphite drawing was inspired by her wonderfully dark poem.

“Morning and evening
Maids heard the goblins cry:
Come buy our orchard fruits,
Come buy, come buy”

Len, your drawing is equally wonderful, if not more so!
Thanks Thom, i love the poem, it shocks me each time I read it; the drawing flowed pretty naturally in response.
