Drawing of Plato's Ion dialogue 'The nature of poetic inspiration'

I decided to draw this up. It's from Plato's Ion dialogue, which is basically a conversation between Socrates and the poet Ion. It's in ink on paper and then brushed over with oil. Oil makes the paper translucent and actually draws the pink pigment out of the black ink of the permanent marker. Funky but it works.
