"This drawing came about because I was frustrated with an earlier color version that I had done. At the time, I had imagined this design looking like the kind you would see on a medallion. The circular design I had envisioned greatly appealed to me because of my love of Alphonse Mucha and Art Nouveau. In addition to this, I also worked out a larger version that I intend to turn into a painting. I'm quite happy with this version, it's a well composed and a well executed piece of work."
