Don't Hold Your Breath
Ooops. Here’s another fuck up.More process photos of the SWANS poster I’m working on.This ended up being a lot more inking than I’ve done in a while. Plus I was working in a studio with no AC during a heat wave. I am human dammit and I need to be LOVED!Again I used an electric eraser instead of a white out to repair the problem.I usually make notes on the drawing while I work with the intent of erasing them when I’m done. I wrote “fix” near an area I wasn’t happy with. I get retarded when it comes to line weight sometimes. So I made the note to fix it. I usually do it when I call it a night and need a few hours of sleep. So when I wake up I don’t forget.I’m inking on a 3-ply board. It’s paper but they call it “board”. So when you’re looking to pick up a decent “board” to work on make sure it doesn’t have a thick green backing. Also the bristol that comes in pad-form kinda sucks in my opinion. I just buy a sheet of bristol that’s 24x36 and cut it down. If you’re a nerd you’ll figure out how to cut more than just two 11x17 sheets from it.
Bristol is kinda like toilet paper when it comes to thickness. 1-ply is thin and people think you stole this from a public restroom at a gas station. 2-ply is not so bad not but a little scratchy. It shows you care but are still a bargain hunter. 3-ply is where the comfort and durability start. You’re a person who likes the nicer things in life. 4-ply and up is like using a bath towel. Kinda overdoing it for just an ink drawing.
