The Day the Machine Stopped

New drawing, possibly not finished, possibly Entropy Series:

The Day the Machine Stopped, 2009, brush & ink on paper, 23.5" x 18". Click on image for a better view.

Difficult to photograph due to the fine lines (#3 brush). At least partly inspired by the E. M. Forster (yes, Howard's End guy) short story, "The Machine Stops", which we read in high school & was apparently influential.

The fineness of the brush lines make it difficult to see at this resolution, but they also give it a ghostly quality which I quite like. Maybe I'll leave be.
