Taking a few suggestions and looking closely at how the pen meets the paper, I've adjusted the distance and angle closer to my taste:




I can write almost normally now. The rest should just be a matter of breaking habits, I hope.

Bluejay with ink-drop and fucked up back:


The back was a failed experiment, next time I'll brush it, not pen it.

Back to the stone paper. Please excuse the lines. Please excuse the everything really.

I'm not sure what kind of bird that is.

Today I continued my devolution from 21st-century science back to preschool arts-and-crafts by making a pop can pen, which is a cheesy version of a real thing called a "folded ruling pen". That's a very simple and surprisingly modern invention(1995) which allows really dramatically adjustable pen/brush strokes. Imagine a brush you could tune from 1mm wide to 20mm wide in the middle of a stroke.



Still figuring out how to use it. I don't think mine's very good, but it's all I've got until more nibs arrive in the mail.

I'm going to read the article, but first just note that "Robotic Helmet That Stops You From Breathing" would serve the stated purpose.

All right, all right, I'll use another color until you get sick of that one too.

I haven't wanted to make or draw anything in a while. Trying to push myself out of that rut produced this nonsense.
