this was done with a marker, then outlined with a black gel pen and then dotted with a silver gel pen. a lot of scribes scream at a cross-bar on a J. i don't know why. they don't bother me. i think i like them better when the whole letter is not too tall. we'll have to have some in depth discussion about crossing the J. i am a lot pickier about when it is OK to put the crossbars at the top and bottom of an I.
the outlining of marker letters is fun to do. squaring off the ends gives the letters so much personality. remember to turn the page as you do the outlining. your hand likes to go back and forth. your whole arm is better at moving up and down.
