... a little natural whiteness

Here is a new version of a text by André Gide that I already calligraphied for my professor.
This time I took only the last part of the text and wrote without any ruling to guide me. As for the decoration, I reused an embossed stained glass pattern previously utilized in other works.

To see the whole work, follow the link to the gallery.

On the wall - 5

Probably the final version of this work.
I added a fragment of Petronius' Satiricon (bottom right) in Luxeuil's script and calligraphied a large cadel initial later highlighted in black to enhance the visibility.

The wall will remain like until the end of the year then I will erase all white a coat of white paint before starting another work.

Thou lonesome one

Here is a fragment from Thus spoke Zarathustra by Friedrich Nietzsche that I really like.
I wanted to give rise to the first word of the text, thus I drew it from a typography and made it half embossed, half engraved on metal.

The remaining part of the text is calligraphied with a fraktur, I felt it was the accurate script for it.
As usual, to see the whole work, have a look to the gallery.

The Flies - final version

I've just finished with my version of the text from The Flies by Jean-Paul Sartre.

You can see the whole work by clicking here.
As it is quite long, one cannot really see anything on this pic, that's why I took close-ups :

The Flies

A long time ago, I did a draft using bits of the text The Flies by Jean-Paul Sartre.
I eventually find the energy to get back to it, here are a few pics of the work in progress.
