Wow, thank you all for the lovely comments!

Coma, yep, it did hurt my hand a good bit but I feel like it was completely worth it. I got a great sense of satisfaction when I finished it Smiley

Melissanorth, I honestly wish I had the wall space to put them up so for now the piece is resting in my portfolio. One day though, one day!

Nataluna, would you believe that each country has its own sign language? For example, in England they use BSL (British Sign Language) and they would use both hands for the alphabet whereas ISL uses only one hand.
 (Also, I see from your banner that you do personal swaps, I might just ask for one!)

Wow! Incredible stuff...and you say you're new to oil painting?
I gotta keep an eye on your stuff, I can't wait to see what else you produce!

Hi all!
 I'm really glad there's a photography thread here, I've been looking through all of your photos and they're incredible!

 I'd like to share some of mine with you Smiley

334  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Calligraphy piece (image heavy) on: December 31, 2009 10:25:25 AM
Hey all, I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the right forum but I would like to share some of my calligraphy work with you.
 I'm a big drum 'n' bass fan (I like a lot of different types of music, the d'n'b is just part of it). One day a friend of mine played "Coded Language" by DJ Krust (with spoken word from Saul Williams) and I was instantly mesmerised. As I sat there listening to this track, I made myself promise to do a huge challenge and do a calligraphy piece on the entire spoken words.
 I knew it wouldn't be easy so I didn't set a deadline for myself, nor did I count the amount of hours that I put it into it. With much stopping and starting, it took me 9 months to do it all, given that each session was roughly 2-3 hours long.
 The main reason why it took so long to do was that I kept running out of ink in my pens so I would have to redo each letter two or three times to get all of the lettering even. That and the fact that the pages are A2 sizes, 7 pages in all. I must have gone through at least 6 black pens, 1 entire eraser and several gallons of tea Smiley

 Without further ado, here's my calligraphy piece:

I used Irish Sign Language here, as I'm Irish and partially deaf.

The silver lettering isn't very clear here but the last line is supposed to be "Thus, In The Name Of:"

Oh wow, I gotta make one for Mr Scruff, the famous awesome British tea-loving DJ!

(For those who don't know Mr Scruff, he plays a huge array of music and mixes them fluidly. He also sells tea at all of his gigs!)

This is so awesome, I must make one for all of my sewing tools. It's too perfect NOT to!

 Very clever idea, I'm sure there must have been a few envious looks at school, especially when they heard it was handmade Smiley

 As the Craftster tshirt says,  handmade is better!

Oh wow...you just made me realise something...GIR is the original Sackboy from the game Little Big Planet! He wears a suit with a zip on it and he loves to run around with that crazy little head of his!

 Thanks for the revelation Smiley

(P.S. I'm also 27 and I absolutely LOVE Gir! Mmmm tacos!)

I really wish I could make one but I can't knit, I can only sew.
 Awesome job!
