I mentioned that i do micrography in my last post. For those unfamiliar with this artform, micrography uses tiny writing to create an image, or to perhaps compliment an image.
This first piece, called "Hold Me In Your Hand" is my son's hand in mine, when he was younger. I created it with an XXXXF nib fountain pen, and the original is about 5" (13cm) in diameter.
This next piece...The Whole World...was also done with the XXXXF fountain pen and is 4" (10cm). The phrase 'whole world in a single flower' came from some book on Buddhism...i love the phrase.
And last summer i really got into devotional chanting music, and decided to use some of the phrases i was listening to/singing in micrography pendants. These are original pieces sealed into 1.25" (30mm) silver bezel cups. I used the .13mm or the .18mm Rapidograph to do these (on matte mylar) with colored pencil on the reverse side.
