This feather is an original ink drawing that is 17" tall. Done for La Isla clothing line in California. Enjoy!

You can purchase a shirt *HERE!*.


  1. Do you use pens or dip pen and India ink? I'm having a lot of trouble finding good examples of dip pen and ink art that's not for comic books. I love your stuff, I just found your site and blog through Tumblr

  2. Hey A. Price--Thanks for commenting on the drawing and for the questions you've asked. I do not dip a pen into ink. I merely use a Pilot Precise Rolling Ball Pen in Extra Fine or Fine and draw in a 14" x 17" space. Then the final drawing usually needs to come down in size a bit for silkscreening or prints, thus making it seem even more finely detailed and sharp. The paper is Borden & Riley Bleed Proof Paper for Pens. I am so high-strung that I don't think I would have the patience for any other technique than straight-up drawing with a pen . . . if I were dipping something I would go nuts. But much respect to you--would love to see your work sometime. I wish you all the best! --Rachel

  3. Thanks! That's very interesting. When you scan it, how do you add color to it so well? Creating layers in Photoshop? Sorry for all the questions.

    I recently did a piece on 18x24 inch paper and while I like how huge that is, it's incredibly difficult to scan/photograph it so that it looks as good as it does in person. Do you have any tips for that? Also, could I put some of your images and a link to your blog on another of my websites? I'm just really impressed with what you do! lol. http://rhymeetreason.com
    Let me know! Thanks!

  5. Could I use your feather for a tshirt as well ?

  6. No, I'm sorry it's my property but thank you for checking.

    1. Is there a way I could purchase it?

  7. I am so sorry, I have sold partial exclusivity and limited licensing to La Isla clothing in California. I can always draw a new feather for you, however. Drop me a line at rcaldwell70@comcast.net if you are interested in a feather drawing.
