the lyrics are from Dante's Prayer. i was sketching for fun, taking a break from studying for finals, and trying to draw scary people. and this is what happened. i did say all i ever drew were pretty girls in long dresses. and i have a confession to make. i'm obsessed with arabesques. that's the folding back and forth along the edge of drapery. i just had my art history exam and oh my goodness the arabesques... and i have an addiction to drapery. i'm crazy about nicely drawn fabric.
