Cradle of Civilization - black nickel to 75
This pin is a tribute to anyone who gave birth during the pandemic. Elephants have one of the longest gestation periods of all mammals at nearly 2 years. It was a long year for all of us.
This pin marks a sort of sea change for my larger pins. A couple of adjustments/improvements I wanted to note: the pins all have a clear epoxy coating over the surface. This gives the art a more finished look and helps to minimize scratching and fingerprinting that may occur during handling. The backside of the pins now are now hand signed by me. The elephant here was drawn exclusively for the enamel pin medium and doesn't exist in any other formats at this point. I'm viewing these as art objects more than enamel pins and plan to continue pulling out all the stops in production as I try and master this medium.
