This is a pen and ink of "Old Baldy Lighthouse." As the title says, "Old Baldy" is North Carolina's oldest standing lighthouse. The exterior of the lighthouse has been restored to a mottled look due to public demand. The tower height is100 feet. It still stands tall on Bald Head Island, just about 5 miles off the coast of a small port town or South Port, just south of Wilmington, NC.

This piece of artwork was drawn with a #1 Rapidiograph technical pen on vellum. The pen and ink was then scanned and run through Adobe Streamline which is a program that changes tiffs and similar formats into vector artwork. After it was converted it was opened up in CorelDRAW and each individual section is selected and filled with color in which there were over a thousand sections. What you are looking at is a piece that was converted to just six Pantone colors only (not RGB or CMYK) for screen printing purposes. This design was printed on many, many garments and specialty items. The total time to complete was approximately 14 hours.
