Wow, Jerry, thank you. I guess I'm not crazy, or we're both crazy. Each ballpoint pen I use has it's own qualities as well as it's own shade. Everything you said I can relate to, and there IS a reason for all these pens I have....but continue to buy. And the layers, direction, pressure.... five different colors of red...you can always go darker...but you can't go lighter. An awesome medium that doesn't deteriorate, too bad the paper does. A lot of my work from 20plus years ago the ink is good but the paper is yellow and fading...the ink won't stand alone. I never looked this up on line, thought I was alone. Happy New Year.
Shoot....Just noticed that was from 2010. Oh well. Kinda really funny.
I really like this, its breath taking...
