The joys of having an herb garden. This time I didn’t run. I guess I’ve planted something that attracts bees. From what I hear they’re not doing so well right now, so I hope this is helping out a little bit. Hopefully one day I’ll be lucky enough to get a snapshot of some of the butterflies that keep fluttering around.

Well, there’s been some slow progress on this one. It’s an 8x10, so that’s expected. Larger pieces tend to take longer. I’m trying out a Coptic Multiliner 0.05 pen for the first time and actually I’m impressed with its performance so far. If all goes well this line a pens may get added to my arsenal of weapons of mass creation. I’m always looking for good alternatives to my good ol’ Micron.
Hope everyone had a wonderful Independence Day weekend. Tomorrow it’s back to the grind.
