An excerpt from a poem by Carl Sandburg:

Drum on your drums/ batter on your banjos/ Sob on the long cool winding saxaphones/ Go to it O Jazzmen/ Sling your knuckles on the bottoms of the happy tin pans...

This was another piece born during Thomas Ingmire's class, as he was encouraging all of us to throw away our limiting concepts of what letters have to look like.

Original calligraphy was about 10 x 20, but I reduced it to half that size when I made the digital painting for the background.
