Art and Creativity Quote by Merwenna Art and Creativity Quote by Merwenna
Wanted to experiment with some new supplies... found this Scott Adams quote online and decided to give it a whirl.  Painted the canvas to give it an old parchmenty sort of look, then calligraphy, then sprinkled it with paint.  Definitely a practice piece,so I guess the quote is fitting? :P

Done with acrylics on canvas & sumi ink

If I remember my terms correctly, that A is done using cadels...I love that style, and I really like this piece. Good work!

Yup!  It's a cadel - sort of based on one that I used for another piece, actually.  :D

The two different font styles... I'm amazed. Both fits perfectly for the two quote phrases.

I've gone around with this quote rattling around in my head always, didn't even realise until recently that Adam's is the creator of Dilbert comics. Excellently presented, nice work ;)

I'm hating how nice this is looking. You are just crushing my ego. Chuckle... not really, I think it's grand.
