I have always admired the quality of patience in others, and work at times to cultivate it in myself. Another quality I admire is consistency, and when thinking of these two qualities in art the work of Edward Gorey and Harry Clarke immediately spring to mind. With the repetitive crosshatching, pattern work and intricate detail, these artists definitely displayed an immense amount of patience and consistency. So, as an homage to these amazingly talented artists, I decided to try my hand at some repetitive, patient work for one of my sketchbook pages, and an hour and a half later, here it is! Thanks for checking it out.
