It took me a long time to realise that a fan forced oven works really well for drying some works. How long have you been drawing on and off though? i stopped a few years ago and now i tend to spend a night doing intensive work instead.
Everything you've created (ESPECIALLY recently) has given me a huge cognitive ladyboner, oh my gosh. I am so envious of the way you use color and your mark-making/illusionary textures. Your work is really powerful.
