Blatant Sketchbookery

By in cats, color, Coloured Pencils, Gouache, Jack's House of Cats, paintings, sketches, watercolor, watercolour

For some reason I’m back into the blog. I don’t think anyone goes here, and the “Blogoshphere” has become a little like one of those abandoned theme parks adventurers like to seek out. Anyhow, I’m baaaaaakk. Not posting as much as I used to, just cool stuff out of the sketchbooks, which are taking too […]

The Wind in the Willows

By in ballpoint pen, Book Reviews, color

I’m finishing off The Wind in the Willows. Very curious book. I remember it being read to me in class when I was tiny, and at that age I didn’t always get all of what was being read or shown to me. Such as when I was watching the movie Mary Poppins, which I loved. […]

Scattered Brush

By in color, digital

Digital painting still isn’t coming easy to me, but I’m happy with the look I can get when I applied “scatter” to my usual drawing brush. I don’t even have to delete the underlying lines. Just paint over them. And this has got a pleasing chalk-like effect to me. So different from my usual watercolour. […]

Digital Bizness

By in color, digital

The one on the left is actually a lady. But I think I gave her too much jaw. May fix that, because it is digital, after all.

A Comic. By Me.

By in color, comics, digital, watercolor

Life has been tough, lately, and I’ve not been doing some things I should have been doing. I don’t know if comics is one of them, but lots of illustrators are doing them. And if I call myself a writer/slash illustrator, then that’s a natural. But it’s not very renumerative. I started drawing digitally, got […]

Digital and Traditional Sketchbook Pages

By in color, digital, sketches

I messed with both digital and traditional (as it’s called) sketchbook pages today. The traditional pages, compiled into books, are more organised. The digital ones are everywhere, squirreled into cryptic files, over two computers. There’s a tiny bit of digital here, anyhow!

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.

Happy Valentine’s Day

By in Blender 3D, color

This is a strange thing with hearts in it, that I made in 3D. So there you go!

Short Pencil

By in Art Criticism, color, Gouache, ruttan's place, sketches, watercolor, watercolour

I don’t actually prefer a short pencil, I just get a little hysterical when the lead breaks off inside the pencil when I’m trying to sharpen it. I hate that.

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.
