Quilled in Action

My nib finally split yesterday and to be honest I don't really blame it. I've shown it no mercy at times. If it wasn't for the pencilling gig I think it would have given up on me alot sooner. Every comic and illustration I've worked on in the last 6 or 7 years has been with that nib, but oh-ho NO, I just hadta keep wearing it down, didn't I? I hadta keep pushing it, increasing the pressure. Oh well, we'll always have Paris.

Footnote: Actually, this is a real pain in the fucking ass.

That's a terrifying image.

I know, Steve, isn't it? Thanks for your support during this difficult time.

S.E.V.E.N. years? I thought nibs
came and went in a day?

That's erasers, Andi.

It's of more concern that in the seven years the nib lasted I got through my own weight in Tipp-Ex.
