Trick of the trade.
Hey Michael, I will try to get this book in the mail by tomorrow. Have fun with it. It's a beautiful thing.
The paper is so absorbent that inking the way I like wouldn't have worked, so I pasted the sketch into the book. The sketch was done by tracing an old pinup image in Adobe Illustrator. I then printed the sketch on to Moleskine Cahier paper using my inkjet printer. I used 3M Super 77 spray adhesive to mount the picture in the book. Then, I inked it. You'd never know that computer had anything to do with it.
