Cake No. 4

This one isn’t finished yet, but here is the drawing in progress for the magenta plate, pen and ink on paper.

Cartoonist Jim Woodring, a much more experienced and accomplished penman than myself, regrets the decline in use of the dip pen by artists. To promote interest in the instrument, he plans to make and master the use of an enormous working ink pen, with a 16 inch pen nib and a six foot handle. He explains the project here. A sketch of the nib is on his blog here.

Added Friday: Below, first CMYK proof.
