David Bowie - Eyes of a Starman, India Ink on Canvas Drawing

India Ink (Faber Castell) on a narrow canvas panel. 14″ x 18″

I’ve never done ink on canvas before, but I thought it somehow fitting to the image I was trying to create.

One thing I love and hate about ink is how cheat-proof it is. I don’t get to erase it or to tweak it, not like with a faulty stroke of a pencil. With ink, my first pen stroke is my last. A bit like live music – once heard, the faulty note cannot be taken back, but the piece is all the more beautiful for its presence.

'Forbidden Planet' Robbie the Robot and the ID Monster, Natalia Faulkner Art, Ink, Art, Handmade, Hand painted, ID Monster, Robbie the Robot, Forbidden Planet, Shirt, T-shirt, tshirt, Cotton, waterproof, India Ink,

Hand drawn with waterproof, fade-resistant India Ink on cotton, this Forbidden Planet tshirt is the only one of its kind.

A few years ago I did an experiment in acrylic, seen HERE, but ink, being a much lighter medium than the wet, heavy paint, allows for more versatility.

This Forbidden Planet shirt will not be available through my Etsy shop, but if you find yourself unable to live without one, email me and we will work something out.
