it smeared when I tried to brush something off of it, even though I let it dry for 8 hours.

@K-2

What kind of ink doesn't dry after 8 hrs? I've had only one--McCaffery's gloss black. Ruined a bunch of envelopes I stacked that didn't dry after a long time--hours.

Loved the needle and thread idea.

lol @AnasaziWrites - it was indeed McCaffery's gloss black that failed to dry after 8 full hours!  (I love that ink though)

13. Roof

A quick bit of very sketchy lettering, reminiscent of one of the subsidized flats we had in grad school.
And a rather more detailed drawing of the Borgund stavkyrkje's majestic roof (using Robert Oster melon tea)

@AnasaziWrites - Blanket ticking!  so clever!

14. Tick

The lettering hints at a tick-(tock) and adds a √ (tick)
The drawing is a deer tick, done in Akkerman steenrood van Vermeer

That is one mean looking tick. Well done.

Oh my gosh the ticking! I love ticking!  ;D

And the tick - that is TERRIFYING!

You both are doing incredible work!

Thank you so much for your kind thoughts, @Erica McPhee -- @AnasaziWrites does such beautiful lettering, it's an honor to be working in the same thread with him.

It's amazing to me that actual deer ticks are the size of a pin-head.  So much evil in such a tiny form!  (I kid, I kid - they are all God's creatures, great and small).

15. Helmet

The uncials are done in Robert Oster's Heart of Gold + walnut ink.
The drawing is the iconic helmet of Date Masamune, daimyo of one of the largest fiefdoms in the later Tokugawa shogunate - Parker Quink black + bleach.

helmet

Thanks for the kind words, @K-2. Would that I had your skill at drawing.
 I may replace the lettering with something more ambitious at a later date. Things have been very hectic around here of late.

compass


Did this compass rose a while back as part of a map. Anyone recognize the map (without googling)?

@AnasaziWrites - My students tell me that your map is from Patrick Rothfuss's books, but I have not read them myself.

Your shell for "helmet" is so clever!  I wish I had thought of that!

@K-2
Your students are quite right. It's my version of the map in the Kingkiller Cronicle, a science fantasy trilogy (at least, it's supposed to be a trilogy, but only two of the books are out, the last published about 10 years ago. Still awaiting the third. Quite good).

@AnasaziWrites - My students seem to read a lot of sci-fi and fantasy.  What a great illustration of "collide" you have.  I admit that I had a hard time coming up with something for this one.  But here it is!

Can you believe we've been at it for 17 straight days now?  I always find this part of the month difficult to push through - the first week is exciting; the second week, I find a rhythm; the third week becomes a chore!  I've already done 15 or 16 drawings!  What do you mean I'm supposed to do 16 or 15 more??

I do keep hoping that a few others might join in for the back half!
