C for Colleen (Rough)


I've been commissioned to do a pen and ink 'C for Colleen' as a birthday present. She loves Escher and her Dad asked me to do something that gives a nod to him. This is the rough I came up with...at that point I had not quite worked out how I was going to frame it but this was my starting point. 

(I'm putting this up retrospectively. 
It is her birthday today so she will already have seen the finished article :-D)

Have you framed it already, because I think a circular mount woud be good?

Mark - It's already been framed. Her Dad wanted me to incorporate the impossible triangle into the design so I used that idea to frame the C...as you can see on the next post.

Ps. Am half way through your book and it's wonderful! I'm taking my time and savouring it...will blog about it once I've finished it.

Wow....and that was the ROUGH?

I think it's awesome.
And I adore how it turned out.

Mel - Yup, I had the main C worked out then photocopied it so I could play about with the inside.

Hehehe, very glad you like it! I was pleased with how it turned out!
