Hey yeah, you're right.I do hate this.
Ha, I knew it. And that's part of the reason it's one of my favourite pages so far.
You know what, I saw a piece in the Tate once that looked like a big piece of black vinyl like a close up of an LP. It sort of reminds me of that, if the brush strokes were ment to be part of it.
The 'brush strokes' here were intentional, actually. Which is going to suck when it comes to prepping this page for printing. Oh well.
