Fuck death, lets ride.
16.16 x 13.26. Pen & ink on paper.

Faster, faster Faster! until the thrill of speed dissolves the fear. A thump in the groin, a buzz in the head, a big grin on the face. Oh yeah, this is what it is. Two full sketch books, two days straight drawing. A few hundred sketches by the end of it. Forced to choose I bin the rest and pick one. Suddenly the status has changed to that of the exalted, finished work. The wild seed becomes the exotic flower.
