Bleedthrumanade with Telstar and Scrubbing Bubbles

I started this bleedthrumanade way back in February, and then set it aside to work on reviews and design team stuff.  I had totally forgotten about it until I was digging through my journals and sketchbooks.  (for those of you unfamiliar with bleedthrumanades--got lemons, make lemonade.  Got marker bleedthru, make bleedthrumanade.  In other words, I color a page with alcohol markers.  The color bleeds through and shows on the back.  When I've finished drawing on the front, I turn the paper over and draw on the back, using the same color base).

There's no ifs ands or buts--Copics and Rhodia paper are made for each other.  This was done in a Rhodia 'R' pad.  Even on the ivory paper the marker color is brilliant.
