Oh, finaly a not-Queequeg! Not that that makes it better than a Queequeg, but still.

My favorite pen has been resurrected. It's a size M Schaeffer calligraphy pen that takes those little tubes of ink refills. I put it away years ago because the ink bleeds through acrylic paints when I just want the lines to stay covered, but then I picked it up again and damn it feels so good to draw with! Well, after I got all the dried ink crap out of the nib, it did.

The Decemberists' "The Legionaire's Lament" came up on shuffle mode as I was drawing. Perhaps my burn-out with that band's music has lightened?

Hi Emily, I've come over from Matt Kish's blog. Had a look through, and wow! I like your art.
