Clip art of a guy reading on a stack of books. Eventually I’ll do a color version of this (or add some black and white shading) but I loved the retro look so I wanted to post it that way. It has a Dennis the Menace by Hank Ketcham feel that I like. This was achieved on purpose (using a dip pen to do the books) and by accident (my ink is getting a little goopy so it’s harder to control it on the brush, which gave it a dip pen appearance.)
Dip pens have always been difficult for me to manage, but I’m starting to get the hang of them and really like using them. You can’t control the line very well, and this forces me to accept a more spontaneous line that normal.
