This was done for a penmanship contest to promote the San Francisco Pen Show. My entry won a wonderful Namiki Falcon with a special Oblique Italic nib with added Flex that was very kindly offered by Mr. John Mottishaw of www.nibs.com.

The innermost ‘Lord’ and the outer circle of virtues is written in German Gothic script in Pelikan Brilliant Brown. The ‘Make me an instrument…’ circle is written with Higgins Eternal Black in Uncial script. The two rings in lighter color in between are written with Walnut Ink available in crystal form in vertical Italic and Uncial scripts. The panels are shaded with soft colored pencils.

Here is the entry:
