Chpt 1, Page 21


This quilt is probably the crowing achievement of my 20s.
And...that's the last of the colored, photoshopped pages from Chapter 1! Chapter 2 is currently being inked and I'll continue to post photos of my progress.

Insomniac Inker



I was looking up a word to explain why I am writing a blog entry at 6 a.m., I just learned that the word insomniatic means someone who is addicted to sleep deprivation. This is according to urban dictionary, but still....Who knew?

What I was really trying to do was preemptively apologize for this entry sounding weird/crazy/rambley since my body decided to start my day at 4:15 this morning. So to pass the time I thought I'd post some pictures of my [very rough] inking progress over the last few weeks. Guys, I forgot how messy and humbling the inking is. Each page is averaging about 6 or 7 hours, and if you look closely, you can probably tell what my blood sugar level is based on how shaky the lines are. Then, you can see just where I gain some confidence and start entering bold swatches of black until "SPLOTCH"--huge smear, which results in some cursing and pouting, then I'm humbled and begin working at a snails pace again with a brush so small, it has approximately three bristles. In the end I think I'll be using a bucket of corrective white paint but I'm happy with the way is shaping up so far.
