    This is my pen tool. There are many like it, but this one is MINE. My pen tool is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. My pen tool without me is useless. Without my pen tool, I am useless.

      The White Stripes — red, white and black

      First that came to mind.

            I've made a few changes to the king, cleaning up lines and adding some motifs taken from the Rouen pattern of playing cards. It's a throw back to some of the original designs.
