My first design job out of school was as a technical illustrator, hand-rendering isometric and perspective views with Rapidograph pens — and refilling the cartridges, and cleaning the tips.
After about a year, I'd developed a permanant stain on the first joint at the end of my left index finger from where I was scraping the dried ink off the nib while drawing. The ink worked its way under the top layer of skin, like a crude tattoo.
When I first used MacDraw in 1985, it was like a gift from the gods. I couldn't wait to ditch those sloppy Rapidographs.
It still took several years for the ink stains to fade from that one knuckle on my left hand.
I'm strictly a 4b graphite pencil, Sharpie, Razorball and Molotow Blackliner man, now. Clean, black lines, perfect on the scanner.
