Winged Creatures: bat, moth, specter, fairy…

Growing up in the country there were always whirling winged things in the night sky that were difficult to identify. My imagination created images of giant-sized black moths, dark fairylike creatures of the night, vampirish bats or some small alien creature descending from the cosmos. Creating that sense of awe on paper is a challenge. Repetition of ink lines in an arcing pattern creates an abstract whirring of wings or a creature moving so fast it becomes a blur of motion.
