I made a political diagram using dip pens and inks on a single delicate sheet of Tomoe River Paper. Check out how small my drawings are!


This page shows them off here (and explains the diagram!).

Politics, AND calligraphy? Awesome :)


Good job, and very good classification. Quite innovative.

Tour de force! Any words about the pens & nibs (oh, never mind, the title says "with a dip pen"), and about the techniques to get the shading and washes?

Very interesting. I just hope this doesn't run afoul of the prohibition about politics (and religion, and undue bashing of "The Ink that Shall Not Be Named") on the forums....
