Here is a practise piece for a collaborative project I am working on with some friends all over the world. The idea is to all create pieces of a culture using traditional craftsmanship, starting with a map (that I'll draw). I will be doing the maps all by hand with quill and ink, hopefully on parchment or hand made paper. Having never mapped with a quill before, I thought I would take the time to practise before doing anything really time consuming and meant for distribution. Although the ink I used was supposed to be waterproof, it was not, so the sealing of the paper resulted in quite a bit of smearing, so I will be getting a different type next time. I would love to hear your thoughts!
