Released in June 2020, the Blackwing Volumes 3 limited edition Blackwing pencil is a tribute to Ravi Shankar as the "Godfather of World Music" on his 100th birthday.

From the back of the slipcover:

In June 1966, George Harrison met maestro Ravi Shankar in Bath, England. Harrison asked Ravi to teach him how to play the sitar, a task Ravi agreed to only after considerable hesitation. Their collaboration resulted in an explosion in the popularity of claisscal Indian music and instrumentation in the United States and around the world.

Harrison called Ravi "The Godfather of World Music." Trained in both traditional Hindustani music and classical European theater, Ravi was an artistic genius who influenced countless artists around the world. He infused structure and spectacle into Indian instrumental music and introduce the West to Indian traditional like meditation. He was a true ambassador of India's rich culture of mindfulness that extended well beyond the stage.

The Blackwing 3 is a tribute to Ravi Shankar on his 100th birthday. It features a matte turmeric finish accented with a pattern inspired by one of Ravi's iconic sitars. The pattern prominently features the Om, a sacred Sanskrit symbol with phonetic components that correlate to the waking, dream, and unconscious states of being. The Om was an important symbol to Ravi, and served as a constant reminder of the contemplative, spiritual nature of his music. Translated from Hindi, Ravi means "sun," and this pencil's gold imprint and ferrule are a meditation on the light he brought into the world through is music and spirit.
