Heart of Darkness

a ball-point pen sketch inspired by Joseph Conrad's story, Heart of Darkness. loosely inspired. the trees are admittedly North American in shape & foliage. but conceptually it's inspired by that book.Then i decided to ruin it by adding odd colors with markers. I did this on a photocopy, so that I'd still have the original b& w. the color seems to add a whole different meaning to the image, gives it and entirely different feel. i kind of like it, though it's certainly not much like how I pictured Conrad's story (with the colors, that is).
