A particularly huge orb-web spider I found in my garden today. I think the weather this summer has been pretty good for them as the garden is absolutely full of them. This was the biggest I could find, head and body almost half an inch, legs easily adding another inch.

Little pen and ink skull.

Still getting used to my new nibpen. It’s a Kuretake handle with G-Nib. This was drawn with Sumi ink on Bristolboard.
