Dreaming I was sleeping

“I was thinkin’ about the things that Rosie said.
I was dreaming I was sleeping in Rosie’s bed.”

Another experiment using ballpoint pen and alcohol (isopropanol) sprayed here and there.

I’ve wanted to draw something with a Bic biro for ages—that indigo blue kills me. Then I found that spraying a bit of isopropanol makes the ink run, and you get this great watery effect. (Though it seems to be only the magenta pigment that runs. The cyan doesn’t seem to run much).

Drawn on 300g brilliant white Clairalfa inkjet paper.

The Bob Mortimer was the first I tried this way. It looks OK… but there are probably too many lines going on.
