After four or five run-throughs, I am forced to conclude that I can’t fix what ails this painting. Even though I managed to fit the entire story on an oversized postcard, the writing is so small that any attempt to fix inking mistakes only makes it look more and more illegible. At this point, the sensible option is to start over from scratch.
I really do like the Address side, though, and it’d be a shame to waste it…so maybe I’ll do the inking digitally.
Either way, BACK TO THE LAB AGAIN.
