For some reason all of the markers but my new black marker were dead. This made for some weird textures within the fields of color, I'm sort of glad they were dying. When a marker is drying up and starts to get streaky you start to get more strategic with your mark making and have to get a little more cautious with your page real estate. Working with what you have is one of my favorite practices. The limitations are inspiring. When trapped you have to get clever to find your escape route. It's harder to think like this when you have 20 new juicy markers in front of you, chances are you'll over do it, I generally do in these situations.
