This little piece is another in my newest series of handprinted quotes. They are so much fun -- they’re like eating potato chips: you make one and you just want to make another one!
This piece was done on black charcoal paper with a Uni-ball Signo broad white gel pen and just a touch of yellow glitter on the back of the bee.
This was all done freehand with no rough draft. I don’t know why I work that way a lot, but I do. It seems like a little planning and a pencil layout would make my life easier, but there you have it. J
Its little drawn frame reminds me again of the beauty (and usefulness) of the irregular line. Oh, and I drew it on last, after finishing the lettering. The whole piece of paper probably measures a little over 4 inches square.
Today I played and made lots of these, so I’ll be posting more later.
