Sometimes you experience the unexpected, like nature disaster. There's water then came along heat wave. After several time I started to worry about my artwork in files. When I checked on them, the paper looked a little damp but not damage. And paper can not last damp. So I decided to varnished a few of them that needed to be saved, specially those that I've uploaded online.
I may not publicly said that the originals I've uploaded online are for sell but it's not impossible if anyone ask nicely to me.
The varnished didn't change the original line of my work or its condition but at least it's much protected. Though to me and most pen artists out there, pen art are best not to varnished because the value of the work is not just about the illustration but also watching the paper grow old and yellow. But I was cornered by nature so it's a contradiction.
The difference doesn't really show but you can feel it when you touch the surface of the varnished paper. And I ended the day with a good cup of coffee.
