I am in the process of laying out a special project; it’s undoubtedly the most important project I have done or may ever do. The layout itself has taken two days alone; I’m cutting up text and repositioning pieces, changing sizing. Late into the night, I sampled different ink and calligraphy tips on parchment paper sheets. By the end of the night, my right hand was smudged from fingertip to wrist bone with black ink and every finger in between was flecked with India ink spots. Probably this weekend will be the stretch to complete the piece and I will be able to feature all of the pictures. In the meantime, here are some beginning snapshots.
