I dreamt that I was in my room and my brother came back from the navy and bought back all these crazy Nibs from japan and kewpie keychains. Also ALOT of shirts from mexico. Then I we had a family dinner and my aunt was yelling at my mom and me about how I wasn't being raised right and then I told her off about how she can't yell at me only my mom can yell at me. Then we played games to settle it. I won the first round but the second game I lost intrest and didnt try and goofed off for the last one. It felt good because everyone was yelling how they new I lost interested and would have won if i cared. Then for some reason I ended up naked in a giant towel jump over buses on all four legs like thoses zombie things in resident evil or house of the dead.
Then I woke up. The only thing I don't get is where there were kewpie dolls in my dream?

If you haven't noticed yet I love inking. I have nearly forgotten how to uses conte` just because you cant cross hatch with that stuff and plus im pretty light handed so that shit just doesn't show. Luckly in some of my classes I get to ink all I want so I can improve on cloth'd models and nude models.
I got my new Zebra Maru Nibs today $15.00 for a pack of 10. I got the hard kind and the soft kind. So thats $30 worth of nibs and if you add the $15 I spent on the Zebra G that comes to $45 PLUS the $10 ink $55! Then you add then pen holders Tachikawa & Zebra Maru holder $3 each and my random da vinchi holder where I added the lefty finger cushion $7? thats around $65s worth of inking supplies!
Luckly Illustration Club had a Live drawing session to fuel my desire to ink.

Its 5:48, I have spent ATLEAST 3 hours looking at pen holder. FYI westerners don't have a wide selection of pen holders. I also learned the word for pen holder is ペン軸(pen shaft). It makes me unhappy every time I'm no a japanese art supply site knowing that I will never be able to obtain these magical Inking Devices. I've been using Zebra G-Pens, Kent Paper, and Pilot Certified ink which I found all of them to be amazing (This isn't me being biast to japanese manga supplies because I hate the Round Nib). Aside from that, the G-Pen is the most amazing pen I have and prolly the only one ill be using for a while.
But i would really like a nicer pen holder.
Also I started eating my vegitables again. GO ME!

I've inking alot these past 3-4 years and learned so much and started to become very picky about my inks. I have so many bottles of ink in my shelf that I don't know what to do with them. I switched from a India ink to Fountain pen ink just because its alot smoother even tho Winsor & Newton is some mighty fine ink. The last bottle I owned was Liquitex Ink! personally not my favorite of inks. Thats when I switched to Sheaffer ink, it's good but it wont stick to my nibs.
This my be bad because I hate saying if but I've really started to look trough the Pen&Ink book (the one with vash the stampede on it) And all the other manga books I own. They all use Pilot "Drafting/Drawing" Ink which is a Pilot fountain pen ink. As I went to the Kinokuniya I picked up the wrong bottle, I got a bottle of Pilot Certified Ink (For Documents) which I might say is one of the most amazing inks I have ever used (its rated top 3 in the Pen&Ink Book) and cost $9.95. I really don't care about prices for Ink as long as its worth it.
Once this bottle is done I'm going to but Pilot Drawing ink and see how it feels.
