Wowww my covers were tearing in assembly again and I finally tested a suspicion that I’ve had...turns out I was right...

some of these covers are printed on a LIGHTER WEIGHT cover stock and consistently weigh less than a different pile of cover stock :aaaa: Just assembled a book with the heavier weighingcover stock and it was totally easy peasy fine 🤯 My terrible printer company saga is never ending :AAAAAA:

Bitmap printing woes 

What was meant to be a fun test print ended up being 4 hours of “why aren’t my presets and pdfs preserving the bitmap state of my pages anymore” that is still yet to be resolved (publisher + indesign).

It used to work for book 1, which was just earlier this year 😔. But I have other things to do today 💀 Booklet options in both programs are very limited re: compression and colour/image control (compared to the general EXPORT) but I live for auto re-pagination...

Inking like this makes flood fill harder 😂 but I like that it is more forgiving than the thin and more precise style for arc 1 (Tho I don’t regret inking that way for arc 1)

The past few pages have been necessary but not particularly interesting background panels

Tore up my old/extra risograph comic pages to collage over these extra cover stocks 😂

Inside pages are blank old strathmore calligraphy parchment-toned paper that were given to me for repurposing...kettlestitched badly 🔥

Futzing with brushes in CSP to see how I wanna ink arc 2 in a slightly diff way. Tried to get it to match how it'd look if I was using a dry/wet brush IRL
