Here are some fantastic customer-submitted images for this month!
Rob submitted two images to our Facebook wall! The first is a sketch of some fierce gladiators, and the other is a visual supplement to the fantasy stories he tells his grandchildren.
For this gladiator image, he shared a little bit about how it was created: "I used the Preppy fountain pen to sketch some gladiators off the top of my head and then used the Aquash water brush to dissolve the ink and produce a wash effect."
