I put my new spiral guideline sheets into practice with this piece. The red text is from The Hobbit, featuring the poem, “Roads go ever ever on,” and the black text is a poem from the Lord of the Rings, “The Road goes ever on and on.” The complete text of both is included. I”m thrilled that I got every word of each to fit!
I used a Speedball C4 nib with red calligraphy ink. I used a .01 Copic Multiliner pen for the black lettering. I used Strathmore Artagain(R) 9 x 12″ paper with a tint of color and visible fibers.
