These small drawings are part of a series that I use to head my poems. The simple lines of the digital sketches take only a few moments, but add an interesting element to a body of copy. A lighter tone mimicking a watercolor wash is laid over the black and white drawn image to tie them together as a stand-alone unifying graphic.
