Seasons Greetings

This year's Christmas card. I wince as I post this, as there are still a few friends I haven't mailed this to yet. Please reserve your shock at my posting twice in one month!

The Gun Moll

Some weeks ago I took a paycheck to the only decent art supply store in St. Louis County and bought a variety of inks. I came up with mix of Higgins, some "non-shellac" nonsense and Pelikan Drawing Ink. In the future I can make do with Pelikan alone, as that's the only ink straight out of a bottle I can use with a decent black. You'd have better luck getting a better black out of old coffee than Higgins straight out of the well- yet I keep giving it another chance as though all the Higgins I've ever tried were just bad batches.
