Illustration Friday: Intricate

I call this the machinery. It's very complicated. Does this mean I'm complicated? Is this my machinery?
I think I'll ponder on that for a while...


Drawing done with ink pen.
Ever since my Etsy thinking began I've thought of selling prints. That was my original goal with Etsy, I just have to buy a very much expensive printer, anyone who has any suggestions/recommendations on which one I should buy?

I love your illustration. It is machine like, but also really organic, a bit like muscle tendons.
I think you should definitely do some prints for Etsy! You can get a decent printer that's not too expensive, just read lots of amazon reviews to make sure its good. Or even get them printed elsewhere.
Thank you for visiting my blog by the way! I'm glad you liked it. And if you wanted to buy that art zine then feel free to haha :)

Very lovely illustration.
What printer to get will depend on what size prints you want to make.
I have a large wide format Epson printer and I love it.

Snyggt!
Det du skulle kunna göra är typ limiterade serier av teckningar/målningar som du säljer.
Då kan du låta ett tryckeri trycka upp dem. Typ silkscreen eller nåt liknande. Så kan du bara signera och numrera.

About printers...first I thought I wanted a bigger one but they are way more expensive than the regular smaller ones and I just want the prints to look gorgeous.
Thank you for all your help and sweet comments!

Niklas: Det låter som en utomordentlig bra sak att göra! Jag får kolla upp vart och pris - jag vill ju kunna gå dit och prata med dom och visa hur jag vill ha det, helst. Tack!

Wonderfully intricate!

beautiful pattern!

i get my illos professionally printed in a photo studio, and i'm very pleased with the quality. it turns out to be cheaper than investing in an expensive printer (and ink) :)

I think your illustrations are so great! I really love HP printer and canon printers are great too!!
But which model I would not be able to tell you sorry :(

Beautiful. Always nice to see a little black and white.

EPSON makes some of the best printers, but you may consider having someone else print in the beginning. The cost of the printer plus inks, paper, etc... can really add up.

This doesn't feel much like a machine too me--too bubbly. More fibrous....

This is way-cool to look at.
