Where Did All the Iszi Go?
Those of you with very good memories may remember some posts here by comedian Iszi Lawrence. She vanished from our fine pages some time ago and we finally figured out where she went.
She was making this!
It’s a mural based on an etching from the cover of Andreas Vesalius’ book Structure of the Human Body. It’s done by hand in grey felt-tip pen.
Goodness. What a striking image. Beautiful location for such a thing too.
But … felt-tip pen? Isn’t the ink in danger of smearing or wearing off over time?
But the more it wears – the more I get to fill it in again. That is the beauty!
Beard of Odin – that’s awesome! How long did this take you? Did someone sponsor your pen budget?
Clearly you’re a madwoman, Iszi, the kind of madwoman the world needs more of.
Out of curiosity, how fine of a grid did you use? I mean how big were the individual squares?
Took me about three weeks – on and off. Didn’t use that many pens, used around 8 letraset promarker twin-tips of varying shades.
Grid was 15cmx15cm… any smaller and it would have been too easy!
