Ink in a Tylenol bottle? I wonder what it means?

What kind of paper is that, by the way?

Elliot Cowan said...

Hey Emmett - I used to use film canisters but they're less available these days...

The paper is hot press smooth Fabriano of a weight slightly less than what it needs to be.

i'm imagining you wallpapering your home this way until 2013. Great pattern! Is the bottle and board a part of the scene, or just to show us what you used?
either way
love it!

Your pedestal for inkbottle is one of the cleverest things I've seen in a while, I'll have one on my table in less than ten minutes.
I like to get lost in crosshatch too, it's very relaxing.

Hey Max - how the heller you?

The stand for the ink I found in a cartoonist magazine during my teens.
The real advantage (if you'd not worked it out already) is that it catches a lot of drips.

I love these hatchy things and also find it very meditative.

I'm ok thanks, I'm looking for a suitable piece of cardboard right now.

I found it, and it's now hosting a bottle of precious non-clogging, pigmented, waterproof calligraphic ink.
