143 hours and four ink pens. [via mefi projects]. Sometimes talent needs a wider audience.

You beat me to post it by 3 minutes! This is so gorgeous. I just saw it on projects and decided to post it to MF. Too late!

Heh. She's using my favourite ink pens for this (figures, since they're awesome for doodling). Glad to see someone putting them to better use than I do.

That must have been one really dull meeting.

I think they'd make lovely tattoos. Long and painful, but stunning. Art is pain, after all.

@dubold: you can get a box of them from jetpens. they're my go-to pen for doing mathematics these days.

That was way better than 127 hours and one dull leatherman knockoff.

I was looking at the photos and thinking that a time lapse gif would be cool but this is even cooler.

Daniel, i know, they're probably the best pens for things like these/doodlings :)

I was thinking the same thing, but I don't think I could sit for 143+ hours of needlework!

Semi-serious question: how does a person hold their hand that steady? she should be a surgeon.

If this sort of design was used on the back of playing cards it could give Bicycle a run for their money.

revikim, what sort of paper did you use? It looks like it is holding the ink really well.

I've been told i hold the pen in a weird way, it's in a really tight grip and held steady by the .. err.. second finger counting from opposite of the thumb.

This is some sort of watercolour paper, but it helps the ink pen is waterproof so the ink doesn't really smear anyway.

I've been drawing my whole life, but I can't imagine having the line control and patience to do something like this. Fantastic. Plus I'm going to go back and the UniBall Signo's another try.

Thank you for posting this. Sumptuous, lovely, worthy of much study on this grey and chilly afternoon.

revikim, I just picked up a pen and tried writing while holding it "your way" and dear god is it better than the regular way. My penmanship is immediately improved and it's also much more comfortable.

You have changed my life.

I wonder if I could buy a high-resolution scan from them....

For my fellow metric impaired Americans out there, this is about 27.5"x40". That's movie poster size!

Neuffy: The "Buy This" button takes you here. Lots of options to pick from.

Okay, I'm blind. Thanks. Went back, still don't see "Buy Now" link though.

Wait, ctrl-F'd, searched, found it. What a horrible "Buy This" icon placement. I was looking on the top, side and bottom navigation.

Great options for purchase through the portfolio though. Thanks for pointing it out and saving me from my refrigerator blindness.

Absolutely gorgeous. I'm so glad I clicked that link.
