I love drawing old objects. I love the character and personality you can play with in an object that has a history. I also love finding ways to use unusual color schemes with everyday items. I liked throwing in a little lime green and violet where it didn't belong to give this object some jazz.
This piece was a lot of fun to create. I have been on a bit of a scientific, academic trek lately and lot of my recent work is about that world. This fellow is kinda a combination of a variety of different microscopes I've found so I apologize to those of you who know a thing or two about the real thing. I took some artistic adventures building it.
