These are my copies of Aubrey Beardsley's work. I continue my study of "lines and grids" which was my topic for the Sketchbook Challenge. In many ways his he was a master of zentangles, he just didn't know the term.
He died at age 25 (1872-1898) of tuberculosis. There was a period where he did some erotic drawings. Towards the end of his life he converted to Roman Catholicism and wrote to a publisher begging him to destroy all obscene drawings. Naturally, that was not done and the publisher sold those drawings and forgeries.
The above is my copy of his self portrait (got that?).
