Another incredible post over at Firmuhment. Initially, I quickly scanned it but left the tab open so that I could read it again, completely with all of the details. I wasn’t disappointed. Amidst all of the hoopla of Tumblr and Google Buzz, I found this post extremely relevant. It’s about a writer named Lorrie Moore who starts a blog, a tumble blog most likely.

As promised, the paperblog I did yesterday. Today’s paperblog is a lot bigger. I used Soho Maruman 8.5″x13.9″. It’s almost 4 times bigger, but easier to work with for some reason. You don’t feel like you need to cover the whole page. Anyway, today’s paperblog isn’t finished yet, but I’ll work on it before I go to bed.
I’ve set up some time after school tomorrow to buy art supplies and Moleskines. I’m looking forward to it, it’s going to be really cool.

I just went through my artwork and found a bunch of pieces that I haven’t posted or scanned. I think I’ll do this in the next few days. There are some pieces that aren’t finished. I started working on paperblog #42¹. I couldn’t decide on what size to use. I decided to start small, with a Maruman Soho sketch pad, 4.9″x6.9″. This medium is a lot better than the previous cheap paper I used for paperblogs.

Currently, I only have one MS. It’s for watercolors and ink and it’s the normal MS size. It’s got 72 pages. I noticed that new folio-sized watercolor MS have come out, an A4 and an A3. I used to keep journals in cheaper notebooks, but I have tired of the cheap paper (ink and colors tend to run) so I’ll shortly get a slew of them from Page One. I want an A4 and A3 watercolor, with an A4 or large MS for journaling. I’d like a smaller pocket MS to take notes when I’m on the go, plus another one for my math research. From what I remember, I’m sure that they are quite cheap here and I’d like to take all of my school notes in MS. That could be really cool.

I was messing around with a paint brush and ink a few weeks ago and this was the result. I have been researching ways to do some calligraphy. After a few experiments, I decided on using ink dip pens as they get the best result. I’ve seen some typographers and calligraphers working with brushes, but they are hard to use. It will take a lot of practice.
This piece actually turned out to be a short poem. Click the image about to read or read it below.
The weight of the world lay on his shoulders, but he could not tell.
Like the abyss that spawned him, his heart of hearts told him different.
What could be said?
What could be done?
No one could tell.
It crushed him slowly into pieces.
The gaps became larger.
No one knew if he could ever be put back together
Things would always fall apart.
