An amazing way to preserve thought throughout time and communicate today's issues for all to see tomorrow. What you write today may be studied 1,000 years from now for not only its content but how you communicated it.

A Gothic themed manuscript; this was my first attempt at a piece that was 11" x 14". Turns out the matt frames aren't framed for 11"x 14" the actual working area is 10 1/2 " x 13 1/2". The hand lettering was completed with a size 3 nib and H Graham gouache. Drew the white lines using a Haff Ruling Pen by taking a small amount of white gouache and watering it down to get a just the right consistency. I found using a ruling pen had more control than a paint brush and it kept the line thickness more consistent for the white lines.
