I haven’t done an Illustration Friday drawing in quite a long time, so I gave it a try again today. The word is “late,” and of course, time came to mind.

Specifically, I thought of two lines from the poem To His Coy Mistress by Andrew Marvell, which I first read in high school and has stuck with me since. It is more about the fleeting nature of time than being late, but I think it’s an amazingly poignant couplet of poetry, and a great poem:

“But at my back I always hear
Time’s winged chariot hurrying near”

And here’s my drawing for Illustration Friday:

“Late,” 5 x 7 inches, pen and ink

    I think slight tangents are allowable :) And I like your drawing – the plain black areas balance the linework very well. It has life and character.
