Never, never, never, never, give up

Winston Churchill's famous quote, "Never, never, never, never give up" served me well today.
After asking for Murray's direction on the first version I decided to go in further search of the elusive "stitchy line" so characteristic of David Stone Martin and Ben Shahn. I have tried drawing with brushes and several different pen nibs. Read that DSM was hard on his nibs and probably went through a few just in one drawing. So I decided to push the nib a bit harder and started coming up with what I think Murray was talking about--the "stitchy line". I even tried Andy Warhol's blotted line (printing) technique (the blotchy line drawing above) I also made some color changes and tried to push that further also...

This is a really nice direction.
