hair drawings

i wanted to get some drawing done today to play with some ideas. i used an older print image for the starting point for this one. it doesn't really work but it do like the hair. i was just thinking about hair growth being a constant in our lives, and this is something i may take further. the triangular blocks were more to do with the idea of shelter and i had wanted to bring in shapes representing home but they became too obvious. so i went with the more abstract shapes and don't think they work, but they could work by them selves in a full circle i think, perhaps with other imagery in the centre? not sure yet though.

i was really pleased with this one though. and i like the way the character is almost feline too. this is something that could work using the ladies i drew before. a series of portraits. the ink works really well too to give the drawings a richness.
