I'm sorry it happened.

Someone pushed it in too far.

An iron burst effaced the flower dancers, leaving sad sparks and bitter smoke.

The friendly touch? This alone was saved.

Yeesh! Testicular chin-hangings and sperm stains on rock formations take me right back to a Grade Seven Field Trip.

Well, anonymous, I can easily tell you exactly what materials I use: HB graphite pencil, Strathmore Series 500 plate finish 2-ply Bristol in pads; acrylic ink (Winsor Newton or FW)and dip pens.

My favorite pen now is a Braus that is shaped like a pointing hand.They are hard to find, unfortunately.
It's stiff enough to control but flexible enough for wide line range.Prior to that I used a Hunt Imperial 101, but found it too fine and flexible for this work.

Whatever pen is used I make a reservoir to attach to the underside of the pen to hold more ink without dropping it on the paper. These can be made of wire, aluminum foil or aluminium sheet cut from cans. They make cleaning the pen difficult (and with acrylic ink you have to clean them several times a day; wiping won't do it)but the extended line and fewer trips to the bottle are worth it.

Puleeze, Mr. Woodring! I beg you! I love your work but it's time to replace the chicken monster. It's been there forever.
Thanking you in advance.
