Nice!
How's linen different than canvas? you tend to use it alot.

i’m still kinda trying to figure that out myself. in general, it’s more expensive – so there’s that. i found a lot of linen canvases on sale and decided to see what it was like. the particular linen canvases I bought have a finer weave than the canvases i’m used to, and seem to be a little less absorbent… but, ummm… i can’t really see that there’s a whole hell of a lot of difference, actually. somebody with more experience between the two could probably give you a better answer.

hey – you went and changed you icon thingy once again… took me a second to realize who you were ;)

i never hear of linen canvases being used... the finer weave sounds pretty good, but i find regular canvas lacking absorbancy as it is, so i'm not sure.
i changed it like, a month ago haha, and the pink floyd icon i'd had since i started.
