The Tree of Life - Healing by Lakandiwa The Tree of Life - Healing by Lakandiwa
The Tree of Life - Healing

“The god’s will is sown
Into the Earth

Life and Death are woven
Into the eternal dance of existence

Even growing
Ever dying

On swift wings
The seed of the Earth
Is plucked from her child
Lifted back to the gods

Bestowed with the will
To bear the gift of Life and Death”

2012
Metallic Gel Pen on Illustration Board

Just exquisitely beautiful, as ever. I think I might have to buy prints of some of your work, they are too good to only see here x

May I ask how you get your colors to show so bright and well? Mine keep fading into the paper.

Thank you Lissa

Well the metallic gel pen ink does seem to glow against the black background, and I also scan my works instead of photographing them. By scanning, I get to capture more detail and the other fine qualities of the medium

Thanks for your prompt response. Metallic works best... hmm. What company do you buy from or is it a mix in order to get the full spectrum? I'll understand if you think I'm too nosy and don't reply.

The only brand of metallic gel pens available here in the Philippines is the Korean brand Dong-A . . . and there are only 7 colors available, which can be bought individually or in a set

12 years ago there were 3 colors available: gold, silver and bronze . . . so my older works seemed monochromatic

Some people who were inspired by my works bought whatever local brand they could avail of in their country, and found them effective
