This was actually a con sketch commission. It was
this piece that made me break out some new pens that my friend Phil had given me. I had tried them out and wasn't really taken by
them. But this commission called for a more brushy look, so I
gave them another try. I fell in love with the pens and embarked on
a bunch of experimentation, which led to most of the pieces in this
I guess sometime you just need to give things a second try...
