I have absolutely no idea why, but this one made me immediately think of the song "Spacelord" by Monster Magnet. The song started playing in my head as soon as I layed eyes on the image (and I haven't heard it for ages). Weird :D

Everytime I see such ink splatter, I think of Ralph Steadman, though you two are not very similar in style. I like the ordered chaos though.

Poor pen, you spilled its innards on the paper.

...now that I think of it, poor paper too!

load the end of a brush with ink and blow, or flick the brush.
