I was not inspired by this word, so under non-rule 22, section b, paragraph 1 of the Inktober no rules policy, and in celebration of the discovery that my 12 oz. bottle of Sumi ink, sealed and unopened for 23+ years is still good, I've penned (brushed, actually) the word sumi in Japanese below said bottle. I've tossed out the contents of the similarly aged small bottle--it took more that a day to dry--and refilled it with the bigger bottle. Turns out, @K-2  it is Yasutomo sumi, not Kuretake, but should last me years unless I start using a larger brush.

Still good, contrary to its labeling …

No expiration date, fortunately. Amazing what Dr. Google can do.

I too rebel against this unesthetic prompt and decide to do my own thing :)
It started with layout practice on blank watercolor paper and ended up as a finished, gilded piece.

Cheers!

Oh crêpe!

@Erica McPhee  I am really enjoying your fine writing.
Very great controls in  skilled effortless easy looking flourishes. But I am sure  they  are  no doubts  the results of  long term commitments to gaining that penmanship.
Lovely work Erika and also those of others who are in this participation  of INKTOBER 2022  IS AMAZING.  Congrats to everyone for all of your fun share!!!!!!

oh wow, @Lucie Y -- Gorgeous!  and with the little birds!  As pretty as the booger @Erica McPhee gave us!  ;)
* Oh, and I meant to say earlier how much I like that capital W on your Wolf layout!

@AnasaziWrites and @Zivio -- that bit of Kanji means that you have a bottle of Yasutomo KF series sumi.  It is heavily lacquered and dries very slowly (especially in humidity).  But when it is dry, it is very shiny - kind of like the McCafferey's Gloss Black of the situation.  If you want the matte version that dries fast and is waterproof, get the KY series.  Generally speaking, I really like Yasutomo inks, with all their special features - their gold ink in the porcelain dish looks dull and matte when you apply it, but it can be burnished to a shine, just like shell gold.

I personally was so inspired by this prompt that, following Lucie's lead, I did a longer piece of writing in copperplate!

K-2, a booger doppelgänger! Well played, and now I’ve heard everything! Honestly, we are fortunate and favored to learn so much from you and to enjoy your beautiful art and writing. 

Between you and Erica we have seen some some very pretty boogers here today. Only on Flourish Forum.  ;D
