Testing FABRIANO BRISTOL 250gr. Bought it today as it is advertised for illustration, graphic arts and design (and comes in handy A3 blocks) but it feathers under any juicier stroke? In the end this paper is not for me, but doodling while testing raised that recurring question once more: “When will I work on a medieval script again?”
Now look what the cat dragged in! Wading through deepest dungeons of my hard drives, looking for something else, I stumbled on a test page I did for Bonelli series JULIA in 2000. or maybe 2001. – not sure now. The proposal was handled via Serbian editor connected to Bonelli, so I never spoke directly to anyone or got some kind of comment from the person that eventually saw the page. It was just a “no-go”. Looking at it now, I would not accept myself neither, so it was an appropriate decision at that time.
