ABC Castle

Another pen and ink drawing. This one was done for the Art By Committee challenge on James Gurney's blog. They are a lot of fun. This week you had to work from the line ;

"It may have been a castle, but it was unlike anything you'd see in history books. An alien hand had drawn the blueprints; I was willing to bet on that."
I'm still working on my pen technique, so I did a more finished drawing. I hope it gets a laugh.

Thank you very much, Raluca. I love the challenge of coming up with non-obvious solutions to Jim's Art by Committee challenges. It's my nature to almost always go for a humorous approach. It's gratifying to know someone else is laughing with me.
