Using a handmade marking brush: The handle is a little over 60cm long, made from a maple branch cutting and bound in coloured treads and jute twine. The brush is also jute twine.

Being one of the first brushes I tried for this project, I wanted to stay simple and see how circular movements could be achieved. The jute held lots of ink and it pooled on the paper so I needed to move it faster to get finer lines. When I let it dry and turned it vertically, I saw the spider in the center of the page; It was facing left and in its grasp, we can see the terrified figure. The figure is outlined by its eye that looks down on the spider, as well as its profile (nose, open mouth) and the slender arms also caught in the spider’s pincers.

Dimension: 15″ (38cm) x 11″ (28cm)
