jaybendt Tomatoes! Been letting mine wait until I had enough to turn them into tomato preserve to go with toast. Today the garden gifted me with all the cherry babies in the Tupperware container. #blackthumbturninggreen #jayslife 1d
  •   jaybendt @seattlestyling so excited to gobble these down haha! Found a good recipe that involves a bit of zest. It'd go perfect with garlic toast for easy lunches. 1d
  •   seattlestyling Yum! I'm all about homemade lunches and always need ideas. Last week I made a potato and tomato frittata and it was amazing! 21h
  •   jaybendt @seattlestyling download the free app Yummly! So many recipes and ideas. I just got it and it's amazing. My first simple recipe ended up being baked zucchini chips 20h

jaybendt Don't you sometimes wish you could go to sleep and somehow level up and become Mike Mignola overnight? Ah, if only. Gotta put in the hours and tears! But for now, I'm off to bed (maybe ill wake up with Mike Mignola skills tomorrow ) night, IGuniverse. #ineedtogotobed #whyamiawake 2d

jaybendt @jetpens take all my money, please. Got the pentel tradio on recommendation of @secondlina and it's lovely! No drag on an up-stroke unlike with fountain pens (the one thing that makes me sad about my pens... Scratchy up-strokes). And the pilot petit2 because it's so dang little and cute, and it makes such chubby lines. Now, @pentelofamerica and @pilotpenusa -- can you guys make these with archival ink please? This artist would appreciate it ;-; 2d

jaybendt Going to try inking these pages the good ol' fashioned way because working digitally is causing wrist pain. We'll see how it goes (if it works well I may switch all #nightshadecomic pages to analog) #wip #partsofdrawings #makingcomics 1w
  •   aq_user Oooooh, how did you make the panel borders traditionally, with ink brush and tape? Or some magical method? :o 1w
  •   jaybendt @aq_user nope lol I'm lazy so I did it in Photoshop and printed it out with black borders. Figured that way they'll be clean and consistent. 1w
  •   aq_user Ah, thank you, that's also super smart, 10/10 1w
