E is For...


E is not for gecko...as you can plainly see; but, if you were to see one of these in your bed you might just yell.."EEEEEEEEEEEEK!" (yup, ya' gotta click on the image to see the hours of detail...please make sure you do so so that the carpel tunnel pain feels vindicated!)

I agree with your posting! I went down to florida in October, and was amazed how people live with all the geckos just roaming around.,,, so much that sometimes they get steped on!.. ECK! :)
Great drawing!!

Karen said...

Yes...I would definitely yell Eeeeeeeek! Love the detail. Beautiful work.

carla said...

You did a fine job...yes, the detail is certainly quite amazing. My wrist hurst just looking at it. You captured the rough and scaly look of his skin...excellent job!

Don said...

Love gEckos! I even changed my business logo to a gecko after a trip to Nicaragua where they were on every wall and over every bed. No "eeks" from me... the spiders, on the other hand...

Your sacrifice for art's sake is appreciated! :-) Wonderful detail work.

Your hard work has obviously paid off here Ellen. Hope your hand is doing well.

the painted pear said...

That is wonderful. Carpel tunnel is not! Did you find a gecko in your bed? But you are here by vindicated!

Jim said...

E is for Excellent! love the detail. I have always been a big fan of good pencil drawings, especially when there is such great detail as this one!

bliss said...

hey Ellen, the gecko is great, Escher (yeah the E!!!) would have been proud.

Oooh...another great pen drawing! Several hours well spent!

Andrea said...

Stunning! E can be for Gecko if you say it is!

Ian T. said...

E is for Ellen! This is a wonderful natural study - I love looking at drawings like this! Did you draw this from a real gecko? Beautiful built up linear textures... excellent!

And no, I wouldn't yell, just pick it up.
