Pages from One of My Sketchbooks.

By in black and white, cats, color, Coloured Pencils, Gouache, sketches, watercolour

There’s a lot that I draw that I don’t put up. Trying to remedy that a bit. It’s not all brilliance, but here it is. Pencil, coloured pencil, Gouache. I think that’s covered it, technique-wise.

By in digital, heads, sketches

Magical Neon

By in ballpoint pen, color, pen and ink, sketches, watercolor, watercolour

This is a page I drew this summer with the help of magical neon gel pens I collected at the depanneur over the weeks, at a dollar a pop. I still haven’t figured out how to incorporate them into serious drawings (if that’s what I do), or know if they are archival quality.

A doodle I made answering @inkyelbows challenge [link here] You can see other responses via the hashtag #2018doodle . Thought I should have it here in my blog. Don’t know why I thought of Star Wars. Guess it’s the recent movie, which I haven’t seen.
