A Light in the Forest

A Light in the Forest
5 x 7 Copic Marker and pen
on "bleedproof" paper (NOT!)
I bought some bleed-proof marker paper today--it does make a more precise line, but it bleeds through.  I was kind of disappointed because I wanted to do double-sided marker images for the sketchbook project.  This paper is very thin, almost like tracing paper.  The Copic blenders do NOT work. (or else I don't know how to use them).  By the way, the actual image (drawing) does not look as dark as this scan.

Well, to buy "bleed-proof marker paper" that bleeds through is a bummer! But you were able to overcome that problem!

No, not really--I did NOT overcome it--I wanted to make DOUBLE-SIDED pix--but this is only one-sided.
