Somehow I've never really got much out of poetry... I kind of recognise what's there, it just somehow doesn't hook on me.... maybe it's the line-breaks, 'cos I enjoy flowery, poetic prose well enough. :D 'LitKicks' though, huh? Looks like a cool little site (certainly a distraction from the events of the day).. I'm following it on RSS. :) And new stuff from you is always welcome as well, so I'm looking forward to it!
Huh, interesting that what *I'd* grabbed was just a fleeting facet/incarnation of the image.... then it changed its face... and now it's changed again. :D New version is desktop'ed now! :)
Honestly, I don't know much about pens -- all I use are cheapo biros, finelines and markers. :D I used to use ink-pens for a while -- just a stick of bamboo with a basic one-piece metal nib jammed in the end, for dipping in ink-pots... nothing special, but they gave a fun, scratchy, Steadman-like feel. All I know is that the people I know that do
use pens drool over Koh-i-Noors. :D
By the way, I've been doing a fun little event called ArtSlam
at the moment -- bit like NaNoWriMo for drawing. :D I couldn't keep up to the target for the first month but I'm doing a bit better for this one, and next month I think won't cause any problems. This is a huge change for me because as I keep banging on about, productivity -- just sitting down to draw, whatever the outcome -- is a real problem for me. :D But yeah, I've seriously down more art in the past month-and-a-half than I have in the past.... I don't know, three years?
my post there with the most meat in it so far. That's from last month's project -- concept art for the story of a conflict between terrorists and heros, in a world where pretty much everyone just can't be bothered to think anymore. :P
