Introducing Ni Carnahan’s Asian Button Girl 01 Faith 信仰/信心 with my handwritten Chinese Bronze Inscription (金文)” Faith “.

Faith 信仰/信心 plays an enormous part in our life in my opinion. And, it can sincerely be in belief of religion (信仰) of your choice or just have faith in yourself (信心). I certainly would not have gone this far without having faith in myself in order to keep creating my arts. I am also fortunately enough to have families, friends, and all of you who support me unconditionally because you have faith in me and my art.  So, my first Asian Button Girl is Faith 信仰/信心, and it is to praise this belief of mine.

So, I am very excited about adding my secret element-my handwritten Chinese calligraphy –into my Asian Button Girl series. I have decided to use both Chinese Bronze Inscription 金文 and Chinese Oracle Bone Script 甲骨文 for this series since there are still some words that I need to use missing on Oracle Bone Script list.  I have done lots of research and put lots of effort into each Chinese character because I want to make sure that I am doing each word accurately. On top of that, I have been practicing my Chinese calligraphy skill daily even though I am still in a beginning level. As a matter of fact, I have always been fascinated by Chinese calligraphy with different styles and ways of writing. So, you can see how excited I am to find a way to combine my handwritten calligraphy with my illustrations. I will continue to explore this technique and see what else I will be able to come up with later on.

Anyway, here is Ni’s first Asian Button Girl. Please come back and see my Asian Button Girl 02-Compassion 惻隱之心 on September, 8th (Sunday). Please contact me if you are interesting in licensing this set. Thank you !
