I was so bummed that I could not be at the IAMPETH conference this week in Milwaukee but I was with you all in spirit. I will certainly be with you all next year...or in other words, you will be with me since IAMPETH is coming to Denver next year! Woohoo!
The calligraphy inspired collection in my gallery continues to grow as I incorporate old world lettering in the context of my fine art. I love returning to my previous works and reflecting on the journey each one has taken, both in its making and the life it took on after its completion. Have you collected any of the artworks above? Which one is your favorite? | #jakeweidmann #calligraphy #masterpenman #gallery #artworks

In honor of Fourth of July this week, I thought I’d share my flourished patriotic eagle-in-flight. This large bird is made up of 31 smaller birds to bring to life the old adage: Birds of a feather flock together. Swipe left to see some of the smaller birds up-close! | executed with a hand dip pen using white ink on black paper | #flourish
This is what I call a “marathon piece.” It is one of those special pieces that takes heartbreaking long period of time to complete. Of course I have to work on other pieces over the time it takes to make this one in order to meet deadlines for commission projects, but that which takes much time to create holds the promise that it will last long into the future. I can’t cut corners. I can’t fall short of my vision. I can’t quit! To all of you who stick around for the long haul and cheer me on along the way- thank you! It means more than you know! #hiseyeisonthesparrow_jakeweidmann
