A duck is carrying a duck who is carrying a duck....

endlos_ente19062015_0000 As a child I was fascinated by those pictures where you could zoom in  endlessly: for example a drawing of somebody who is drawing somebody who again is drawing somebody... Now I made one myself.

How do I get ideas?

It often happens during drawing. This time I was just doddling a bird with a strange shape and then thought, this bird could have small ones on his back. And swim.

Then I thought there could be water on his back and so the idea was born. Then I draw it on water color paper. I may do it once more with different colors and only one duck swimming to see the difference.
