handcarves

In Calvinist Heaven you get to watch God hand carve a wooden chair and it takes him eighty years and if you speak at any point or touch anything in his workshop you get sent to hell

Art journal page I made by stamping with a handcarved stamp, which I then colored with ultrafine point Sharpies.

The Blossom hairpin has sold and is heading off to a new home in Germany. With the Ragwort pendant leaving for London and the Snowdrop spoon going to Wales there aren’t too many items still available in my shop… Visit gilesnewman.etsy.com or follow the link in my bio to check out my shop.

The Hero We Deserve - Handcarved Print on wood by Drew Meger

So remember when Bob Kane’s flatmate went a bit nuts and then disappeared under mysterious circumstances? All that was left was a draft of The King in Yellow #1 - Kane never spoke about it or the “influence” it might have had on the development of Batman.

For @journaling-junkie’s January 17 challenge - favorite pens.

I limited myself to just a few of my favorite pens, because otherwise, this could’ve turned into an epic. I love pens. Not a big fan of pencils, actually, but they do have their uses. My favorite pens write boldly, with dark, thick lines… except for the white Signo Broad and silver-purple Gelly Roll, that is. Still bold, wide lines - just not black or dark purple. I like pens that write smoothly, without skipping. And for fountain pens, I love the inky darkness of Noodlers Black Ink. For writing on gesso, acrylic paint, and the like, the Fude Ball 1.5 is amazing - highly recommended. The white Signo Broad isn’t quite as robust as the Fude Ball 1.5, but it’s the best gel pen I’ve found for writing on dark, variable surfaces.

From the top: Fude Ball 1.5 (black), Pilot MR medium nib fountain pens (2, black ink), Sharpie pen (black), Pilot Varsity disposable medium nib fountain pen (purple ink), UniBall Signo Broad white pigment gel pen, Gelly Roll silver-purple gel pen

Stamped with a stamp I carved for this entry, with Polaroid zInk photos, and writing from a Pilot MR fountain pen.
