Home with a Cold, in a Sea of Stripes (Final)

'Home with a Cold, in a Sea of Stripes (Final)' self-portrait in ink by San Francisco Bay Area artist Julia Kay. (Click to view same image larger.) I had a misguided idea that after doing this I'd be able to 'simply' layer color washes over it for full color, but after some failed exper-imentation on the side, I have decided to leave quite well enough alone. Detail of 'Home with a Cold, in a Sea of Stripes (Final)' self-portrait in ink by San Francisco Bay Area artist Julia Kay. (Click to view same image larger.)

Well, one of the things I think is cool, is that you can sort of see the color, even though it's not there. I t's like something about the strongly differentiated values makes your brain 'feel' color...
