I would have said yes, but I see that you did not wait for an answer, already stole the image AND REMOVED MY SIGNATURE. Remove my image from your blog immediately, and do not use it again.

I like the simplicity of the black and white, and I love the swirly grapes down the middle(s) (although the one nearest the leaf doesn't exactly match up on each side, but I don't think it really matters much :))

:giggle: You noticed! :D No, they don't match exactly, because I drew this as a single piece of artwork. It was very challenging to draw the mirrored designs, and then not draw on the dark side exactly the same shapes I did draw on the white side. For some reason, that was particularly difficult for me on the leaves. There are tiny mistakes and imperfections in all my knotwork, but I think that is part of what makes them instantly recognizable as hand-drawn. The completely computer-generated knotwork can be amazingly beautiful, but it always seems a bit too perfect to me, almost creepy sometimes, if that makes any sense... Despite that though, I do strive for a perfection I don't think I am capable of reaching. ;)

Don't we all!
nah, I love looking at these stylistic designs, and especially the knots - I like trying to follow the 'string' round.
I can certainly see that it would be difficult! How do you go about making one of these?
