This is an older ink drawing from 2004 but this is exactly what I’ll be doing tonight, except I’ll be all alone and watching Fringe and have my sketchbook in hand to put pen to paper or perhaps I’ll put coloured pencil to masked paper and finish up Chasing the Dragon. Continue reading
I drew each card with Faber Castell Pitt Artist Pens (India Ink), Pilot pen (Opaque white ink) and Prismacolor Colored pencil on antique & vintage wallpapers that I salvaged when renovating my house last year.
An ACEO stands for Art Cards, Editions and Originals. They can be created with any medium on any surface but must adhere to the standard size of 2.5 by 3.5 inches.
I am thinking of making a box out of the vintage wallpaper to house these cards in that is similar to this box of cards. Once the box is done I’ll list the whole set in the shop. It’ll likely be priced around $1000.
And below is a detail of three of the cards.
And isn’t life (only) what we perceive it to be?
Each miniature original was drawn with india ink, pilot pens and opaque white ink on various acid free card stock and are available in the Original Art/Aceo Section of the shop.
Keep an eye out for much larger 10 to 19 inch prints in the shop. They ARE coming soon! Because my miniatures are very detailed in nature I can scan them at obscenely high resolutions and am able to print them out at much larger sizes all the while retaining that detail. And so many of you have been requesting larger sizes… hang tight. They are on their way very soon. Likely in May xo
All were created using Pilot pens, Faber Castel India Ink and Prismacolour coloured pencils on Strathmore petaled fine art paper.
Size – 8×8 inches / 20,3cm by 20,3cm
The original illustrations are for sale. Within the individual listings you can see close-ups of each illustration.

We all feel disconnected from ourselves and even with the world that surrounds us during moments of sorrow, loss or simply because we are overwhelmed. Know this though, you are not alone with those feelings of anxiety or hopelessness as we all from time to time do feel this way.
Take comfort in knowing that every emotion and feeling that you experience will pass, evolving into yet another that in turn to, will adapt and ever change again.
We are human; and that IS what connects us all.
I created prints of this ink drawing today, for sale on HangsaLittleLeft.
