More experimentation with baybayin. This came after several failed attempts to do a sheet of italics, and went on to consume several hours of pretty intense pointed pen work.

Broad-edge and pointed pens, Moon Palace sumi and J Herbin Perle Noire ink. Halaman is Filipino for ‘plant’. Actual size is approximately 2.5 x 2.5 inches.
