I'm in love with the way you're in love with the night
And it travels from heart to limb to pen
And we waited for the sirens that never come...
And with this pen, I thee wed
From my heart to your distress
Every word handwritten


- from 'Handwritten' by The Gaslight Anthem


I'm beyond in love with The Gaslight Anthem right now.
The song Handwritten from the album of the same
name inspires the hell out of me, so I decided to take it
rather literally and have some messy fun with the concept.


Materials

This is just amazing. I mean honestly, you captured everything perfectly. I think, actually the blood looks real. Yes, usually it isn't that thick, but there are occasions. Though I'm not really a fan of bloody art, this is just really amazing.

Thanks :aww: There are SO many things that affect the consistency of blood. I was going to referred to "how it's stored" but that makes me sound like I keep vats of blood around the house. Which I don't ;)
