This is really nice Dave. I love pen/ink and have collected a few reference books on how to achieve various textures etc... I love looking at the sketches in the books, but they do take a lot of patience, no? You've done a great job on this particular project. It looks like it would make a lovely stationery card or travel postcard. Maybe you could do a series of local spots and print them up! :)

Beautiful detail here. This must have taken a long time. I love your drawing of the glasses as well.
