Added 1 new A* page:Each month, I get to send out rewards to folks contributing to the A* Patreon campaign, a monthly fund consisting entirely of voluntary contributions from A* readers, which helps keep me housed and fed while I work on the comic—for which, you can imagine, I'm very appreciative! So it's a real pleasure to be able to give some rewards in return; over the weekend I e-mailed out the brand new episode 27 e-book to supporters at the e-book support levels, and here's an ink sketch I snail-mailed off to a reader some months back (I just realized I have a backlog of like 55 of these to show off in the blog—and another 12 or so I still have to draw and mail out in order to catch up to the latest month of rewards, I think...so I'd better start showing these off to the rest of you faster than I have been!) for helping to support A* through Patreon that month:

Patreon sketches are pretty much my sole ink practice these days, too, so that's another reason to enjoy doing them. Another thing I just realized is that, what with the infrequent ink work and all, I forgot about the discovery I made a while back (I think it was when preparing to ink this gallery piece), that if I add some water to the ink I can do more flowy lines with it, without even making it significantly less black-looking. Maybe I'll try playing with that again for the next sketch...or maybe the ol' unadulterated, thick'n'chunky ink will work better for whatever the sketch is showing. More likely, I'll probably just forget about the water-adding trick again!
