Last night I got home from work and fell asleep, so I have some catching up to do.
Tonight, some Copperplate practice, and darn I screwed up the ligatures halfway through the word. Will be working on it.
The capital T isn't balanced either. But I have a no-redo rule, so I have to live with it  ;D

I'm off to bed.
See you soon!

P.S.
@AnasaziWrites I love your Spencerian script!
Oh crÍpe!

Oui, c'est moi, 40 years ago. And yes, I was an investment banker at the time, and that was my car.  I originally thought to use a piece of chocolate cake or stack of chocolate chip cookies as an illustration, but in looking for a quote, found this. It was just too perfect not to use.

@InkyFingers and @Erica McPhee and @AnasaziWrites - I'm having Spencerian envy!
@Lucie Y - I might also be having Copperplate envy.  So beautiful!

And Mike - I'm definitely having car envy.  Can we go back in time and take it for a spin?

Here's my take today - the drawing is done with one of my favorite Diamine Invent 2021 inks, "Tempest".  The luminescent purplish effect comes from applying bleach to the saturated ink.  It's the same technique as I used for the jellyfish in "Empty" and the vampire squid in "Booger" - I'm working on getting a bit more precision control over the bleach effect by playing with different dilutions.

@Erica McPhee Wow! Such elegant flourishes.  My idol!
@AnasaziWrites Yikes an 80's Ferrari 308GTSi?  I hope you still enjoy it or do you drive a Benz now?  :P

Good spotting on the model. It's a 1978.
Sold it long ago. Currently driving a Porsche Cayenne S. My wife, on the other hand, drives the faster and prettier Audi RS6 Avant. That car will move much faster than the Ferrari.

Sure, all we have to do is buy another one (sold mine years ago). I think you might like my wife's current car, though--Audi RS6 Avant.

Looks great, both the drawing and the copperplate.
