Tamazuj

Based on a picture I took in July in an ally somewhere in Louisville.  Spent several weeks and headaches doing the pencil rendering, then inked it in with a fountain pen in three hours and fifteen minutes.  “Tamazuj” is Arabic for “intermingling,” and I first ran across the word in Radio Tamazuj, the title of the independent Sudanese news organization reporting on the areas along the borders of Sudan and South Sudan (I do volunteer work about Sudan, mostly Darfur…check out Radio Tamazuj and Radio Dabanga‘s websites if you want to keep up-to-date about those areas). 

12.5 x 9.86 inches, pencil and fountain pen; from 2018.  Print is a matted, mounted, signed 600 dpi print on white acid-free cardstock with half-inch borders.  Limited edition run of fifty. I only use permanent, pigment-based HP inks which meet the ISO 11798 fade-resistance standard.
