This Green and Brown T Rex dinosaur Original Inkblot Art Illustration 5 x 7 would thrill any Dinosaur enthusiast on your holiday list! My friend from francesclements says she has such fun making drawings from ink blots. What starts as a drop of ink is blown into an interesting shape. The shape usually calls out to her. she add lines to create what she hears. In this case, she heard “dinosaur”. In this case, the ink “jumped” and made a little splat above and to the left of his back. What can I say. You can’t control ink. You can see the splat in the picture. I think it gives this little guy some character.
