Dickenses

“A wonderful fact to reflect upon, that every human creature is constituted to be that profound secret and mystery to every other.”  – Charles Dickens

Below is the Black&White version with the values bleached out.  I like altering my drawings with the Photoshop threshold tool.  Sometimes it works, sometimes not, but I think I this is an interesting result.

 

(Just to be clear, there were more Dickens children, but I tried to approximate how many were born when Charles and Catherine were around the age they appear here.  I doubt it’s accurate, but “artistic license” and so forth.)
