The tension may not be apparent just looking at this drawing. However, if you watch this little clip of fish hatching from eggs, these little guys just SPRING out of their embryonic homes. The composition was originally intended for an earlier Illustration Friday topic, "Future." Missed that deadline. So, by changing the crystal ball to a fish egg the drawing works for this week's topic, "Tension." Come to think of it, the fish egg would have been a much better solution for future than a crystal ball. Pen, ink, and watercolour.
