This is my first trial doing art with letter rubber stamp. A technique that I have been working and refining since 2011. The first test was done on an A4 size paper using a three layered stencil cutout as foundation. I quickly realized that the size of the paper was key to get details and profound shadings in place. This piece was made with a handmade stamp I was using for making my business card. I later found pre-made alphabet stamp where I could pick and choose my own wording. I found the painting much more interesting when I could incorporate my own thoughts and concepts in the object.
