I am not keeping up too well! But here is a piece for today. I am experimenting with gel pens and sharpies after having read lots of praise for these tools in some of my favorite blogs. The gel pens are great for paper because they don't bleed and I don't have to worry about dot gain in all the tiny spaces I tend to work within. The Sharpies have awesome color, but they bleed into the paper. No worries. I actually bought them for use on non-paper surfaces anyway. Apparently, they write on just about any surface with the same brightness and great coverage. I need to draw on something outdoors!!
