actually, this weekend i dusted off the brushes and experimented with brush lettering. need to get some denser ink though, india ink is too thin.
got a book called "Lettering for Reproduction" by David Gates. Trying to get the strokes smoothed out. kinda fun actually, its a good thing i dont have any real work to do right now, i can just play for a bit.
dont worry, i would never buy a Coop, i would spend my $200 on coloring books first, or better yet, food and stuff.
and thanks to formal education, ive spent at least $600 on art supplies that i will never/rarely use.
