Beauty Today, Beast Tomorrow?

Recent events reminded me of the flight of an insect-like drone reported last year in Nature. As I watched the small machine flapping its delicate wings toward the light, its energy source (YouTube link), I felt as though I was watching the first steps of a baby. At the same time, I couldn’t help but wonder what it would grow into: a nimble rescuer, or a killer under unexpected circumstances?

Little My on a Swing

I made my first drawing with the Duke 551 Confucius Fude Nib Fountain Pen (which I got inspired by Ed’s drawings), and wondered how Little My (from Moominvalley) would like it.

After reading the comparison of Fude Nib fountain pens, I decided to get the one with the widest nib. I used to think pen strokes are too dry, and brushstrokes too wet, and this one seems to strike the right balance for me. It’s stiffer than I expected, but I like it since it gives a clean edge at the tip and a rough edge on the other side, which feels like carving.

Then – although I love admiring everyday objects, one point of drawing them is to see them from fresh angles, so I let My in.

Swollen, Guarded, and Tranquil View of the World / ๋ถ€ํ‘ผ, ๋‹ค์žกํžŒ, ๊ณ ์š”ํ•œ ์‹œ๊ฐ

I was implementing Graham’s helpful suggestion when I couldn’t resist going wilder. I wanted to add hope to my rather desolate rendition of a lightening-stricken treeย (below), but I didn’t want to make it an afterthought. The contrast between the strike and new leaves had to be the main theme. And probably the leaves wouldn’t need to be prominentโ€”they just needed to be there, as “pennants”. So here they are.
