<insert look of horror>

That is all.  
Carry on, gentle citizens.
This is several dozen times harder than I expected.  Seriously, what the hell.  The fancy Kolinsky brush I bought had splaying bristles as soon as I used it, which doesn't help, and Speedball Super Black is surprisingly thick.  Maybe a different ink would be better?

I'm a hyper-traditionalist -- I've done all the "le artiste" training with traditional materials and seriously can't even use anything more technological than MS Paint.  
I can use most brushes and media well enough, but holy hell, people, how does anyone get an even line out of freehand brush inking?

Do traditional inkers even exist anymore?
We who seek the physical over the digital, are we a dying breed? (Okay, I know the answer to that is "yes", but really, anyone around here use brushes?)
Well.  I face-planted on NaNoWriMo.
To be fair, I didn't really have a plan on how I was going to write when I was driving across the country, camping 50% of the time.
On the other hand, the data I gathered while travelling was quite useful.

I watched my back and all types of people in New Orleans.  I'm glad I never released the fantasy story I wrote that was set in that city.  I knew I was missing the flavor of the place and gawd damn was I right about that.  On the other hand, I was also correct in that my character would have fit right in with the homeless population.  There were enough homeless folk to qualify for an upgrade from homeless subculture to straight-up culture.  I was only there for about 8 hours but my impression of the flavor of the French Quarter was: desperation with a hint of smiles.

I abandoned my depressing novel about the punk band in the 80's.  I planned that thing like hell and still wasn't anywhere on the plot at the end.  I want to punch myself out every time I write the dialogue.  I know people from South Central L.A. don't talk like that but I lack enough experience to adequately fake my way through it.  And I'm not sure how to access that experience without getting punched out by other parties.  Oh well.  I'll fix it somehow -- that story won't leave me alone.

Coming Soon: the Sci-Fi epic I've been working on since I was 14 years old.  I've actually made progress despite the fact NASA won't give me the time of day.  Just have to watch a lot of boring International Space Station videos of spacewalks.  I'll possibly have some pencil/ink sketches up this month, possibly a synopsis.  I kind of hate synopsis writing, I've discovered.

And that's everything you didn't need to know about what I'm doing! :dummy:
