The Wind by mel-face The Wind by mel-face
This one was super fun to draw all the swirls, and I'm really happy with how it came out.

Word order as follows:
We learn, as a child, to feel
the wind,
And exist in consciousness,
remembering our lost moments.

it was a little difficult to read at first (i especially didn't see the phrase 'the wind,') but reading the whole poem in your artist's comment cleared it up for me. a very simple but pretty poem! there's so much truth in that. and the swirls are lovely too. i love how it echoes the image of the wind in the poem.

Book reports must have been terribly difficult for you. :)

That said, this is a fantastically creative way to make poetry. I look forward to seeing what else you come up with in your literary defacing endeavors.CURSE YOU!  Great job.

did you do it directly on the paper, or is it digital?

All of them (except the one in the nature book) are drawn directly in the book with india ink pens. C:

do you doodle first with a pencil or do you just draw with the pen?
Reply
:iconmel-face:
mel-face Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2012  Hobbyist
I always plan out at least the poem itself with a pencil. In this one, once I had the poem outlined, I kind of went to town with my pens, planning in my head, only. However, my other piece, Pace, took a LOT more planning and sketching because I wanted the hands to look realistic.
So, it pretty much depends on what I'm drawing.
Are you planning on giving found poetry a shot?
