Crab Constellation

Maria Tyra's avatar Maria Tyra

'Crab Constellation' is a surreal steampunk-esque pen and ink drawing of horseshoe crabs and gears. The drawing is done on a 18"x24"x3/4" cradled Claybord with waterproof Radiograph ink and an India ink wash. The watercolor application was limited to minimize the disruption the color makes to the bold impact of the black and white line art of the ink drawing.
