I went back to my Speedball file and found some tools that have been all but forgotten with the advent of the computer. But on this hot summer dog day, I urge you all to pick up some “free-flowing ink” and “smooth cardboard” because “Sticky inks seldom give satisfaction” and start drawing letters with a Speedball. You’ll be amazed by the zen-like stress-free-meditative ease. Of course remember this: “Choosing the style and size pens best suited to the construction of letters you are going to make simplifies your work and minimizes time and effort” What’s more “Clean pens do clean work” and “speed will come later when strokes are mastered.”
Well now, they often call me Speedo, But my real name is Mr. Earl, Bom-bom-bom-bom, Ba-ba-do-do-do.
If any of these rules cause more stress, get a cat.
