Edmonton Calligraphy Society hosted Sally Towers Sybllis teaching Mandalas on ZOOM. Wonderful session. I decided to use the technique for my Scribbled Lives challenge this week...

Drew the circles with my Helix circle ruler on Bee Super Deluxe paper with a black Zig Writer. Painted with QoR watercolors and a yellow gold from my Gansai Tambi set.

ID: Wk 45 - Joy Harjo - A Map
Size: 7" sq

I thought I'd keep this very simple... On Genoa bond paper and using a Prisma colored Pencil (Cool Grey 90%) in a pressure release Bookhand style lettering wrote out a portion of the poem.

Excerpt: Crucial to finding the way is this there is no beginning or end you must make your own map.

"A Map to the Next World"

There are so many fabulous one liners - how do you choose...

On Genoa bond paper and using a 6,0 Parallel pen with Sumi ink, wrote out the word Houston in an extended lettering style and then the rest of the "one liner" with an Artistro red pen in monoline.
