I have three pieces of art in the Posing For Life show at Fun Space in Taipei, China from April 25, 2019 to June 9, 2019. The show poster is here:
These images are limited edition prints released exclusively through Fun Design Taipei.
This image shows some other works in the exhibit. This is all I have - unfortunately I can't make it to the show as it's an ocean or two away:
Thanks to Sandrine Cheng & Fun Design for making my work a part of this show.

I made a video demonstrating one of my favorite nibs: the "Blade Turk" custom grind by Mark Bacas from nibgrinder.com
The nib is sort of a super-ultra-fine architect grind, which means the downstrokes are thin and the cross strokes are wide... but not very wide, being so fine.
Here's a gallery of images showing the pen, the nib, and some art I made with it.
The shape is curved a bit, so the line variation changes based on the angle as you use the pen.
It's amazing. The nib is on a TWSBI 580alr which is like the 580al except with some trim differences and a ribbed grip section.
It's a great pen, great nib, and I definitely recommend Mark Bacas's nib services for modifications or repair. I will definitely go through him again for more custom pen work...
"If MF DOOM was a fox, he’d pro’ly steal a kid and lock it up in a box. But not to do it harm... More to save it from a life of working on a farm.
He’d do that kid a favor. He would save her. Just what you would expect from a friendly rapping neighbor."
This started as a little fountain pen drawing. I had planned to redraw it but the sketch itself had some life so I added some loose color and it seemed to work pretty well.
