ABC's in Pen

So I have yet to set up my studio, and until then I am going to try to use more pen and ink. With that thought in mind, I posted this picture I made for a show I had in 2013.

When I started creating this piece, I did not budget enough time. I had naively thought that using only one medium, pen, would make this piece a quicker finish. I was very wrong. Each letter took on average two hours; some letters took upwards of three hours while other letters one hour. I used sepia colored pens with different sized nibs. The letters are about two and a half inches tall and the entire piece is roughly 2'x2'.
