I tried painting for a few months. I like it, but I don't think I have the patience required yet.
The good news is that the recent things that have occurred in my life have somehow made me start drawing again. Pen and ink has always been my favored mode of stylus-based expression, particularly freehand drawings. Now I'm done with the paint for a bit and am going to do large format pen and ink drawings on bristol board. Hot damn.
