I cant't possibly do them all in one sitting, so I just dicided to pull ten bottles and start at the beginning.
I've swatched a bunch of inks and found a few old favourites. Some inks I remember as very similar are actually a bit different.
Ten down, a bunch to go 🙂
I made some extra cards from a sturdier gold coloured cardboard and a thicker black plastic. Now I'm at least done cutting for today. And I have enough swatch cards to last me a good long while.
I got around 185 cards from this dotbook that was originally an accidental purchase. I have somewhere between 50 and 60 inks so this will last me a good long while.
I'm not drawing a bunch for #inktober. Kind of wish I had the head and time for that kind if thing but I don't. I have been thinking about swatching some inks tho'. So I might tag that as an october ink thing 🤷♀️🖋
comment on the facebookthing that happened
I think the right comment about the whole "facebook is down"-event that happened yesterday isn't that we should all be glad because facebook is bad, no matter what we think of its values people still rely on its services.
I think the important comment is that it could never happen to mastodon, because of the decentralized structure. At most we could lose part of the network. A DNS-error couldn't bring the the entire fediverse down.
If I had realized it was the start of #october I might have made an effort to get these out yesterday.
I've never had a piston filling pen before because they seem like a lot of effort to clean, but I've been eying this for over a year, maybe it'll be worth the cleaning. Feels great to write with.
I've been playing this mobile platformer game and it's just enough challange and a lot of fun.
Now I'm on the last level and I think this is gonna take me a few days to clear, but I'll miss it when it's over.
(I think it's on other platforms as well)
In a decentralised social media it makes sense to host yourself. That's what we decided to do. This instance is run by two nerds, mostly for the why not of it. Feel free to join, and we'll hit you up with an "Hi, who are you?".
