Temporal Gravestones.  A black and white sketch by John C Ricker.

A black and white sketch by John C Ricker

I created this image using a fine-point felt-tip pen. It took approximately 5-6 hours and is the image on the cover of my short story entitled “Precious Metal.”

This is a good example of my black and white hand drawn art. The errors I make while drawing become new paths and the image grows in complexity the way any organism does. I apply simple rules to the construction of the image and only break the rules when my inspiration demands it.
