Having lived for half a century is darn cool....

You might remember the photo of a friend of mine, kicking starting his bike.
Well this dude turned 50 and I used the chance to create a present from him, using traditional ink & inking nibs, molotow black & white acrylic ink. It turned out great. MUST DO MORE LIKE THIS.
Finally I glazed it to bring the different materials together and hide the brush strokes a little bit (this stuff is called Elefanten Haut or 'elephant skin'. actually it is just water based acrylic binder).
