New Toys….

My mother-in-law gave me some $cratch for my birthday (no matter how old you get, a check is always a good fit). I went on a bit of a minor Amazon shopping spree. Got some art supplies, a book I’d had my eye on, and some super responsible things too…like replacement Foosballs, and Shop Vac filter bags.

Anyway, one of the art supplies was a ream of paper. Jake Parker, an artist whose work I really respect, has a list of “tools” on his website that he uses. He recommends using Hammermill Color Copy Digital Cover, 80lb. 8 1/2″ x 11″. Works for him, sure can’t suck for me. Well my ream showed up today. Wow! So good! It’s a thin card stock basically, super white, super smooth, and bleed free on any of the pens I tested on it. Stoked is an understatement. $12.00 for 250 sheets of magic paper? Oh yeah!

Doodling quickly ensued. I did a quicky little ‘toon. Paper held the ink well, it dried quickly…so into the scanner it went for some digi-coloring.

This is what popped out…

Thank you again to my mother-in-law!

Have Fun!
