Pen ‘n Ink

By in horses, men, sketches, women

I’ve been messing around with vectors and other things, managing not to post. But here’s a drawing drawed with a good old fashioned dip pen (with brush pen outlines): And a brush pen horse. Trying to catch that equine grace:

More junk I’ve been drawing

By in horses, men, sketches, watercolour, women

Haven’t had all that much time, so I’m putting up some odds and ends I’ve drawn. The aging guy heads were copied, more or less, from the book Drawing People, by Barbara Bradley. Flying things, and a nerdy kid. An old-fashioned “War of the Worlds” tripod, and a farmer’s cart. Why? I have no idea.

Colour Comic Time

By in horses, watercolour

For some reason, these take about as long as the black and white ones! Going to try and do more. They’ll probably make more sense, get more relaxed as I go along. I’ve got a pile of stories. Just haven’t drawn (or painted) them, yet. This one come out of my head as I was […]

August Montreal Comic Jam

By in horses, sketches, watercolour

After missing a couple of nights, I finally made it to the monthly Montreal Comic Jam. Took pictures, but now I’m lazy, and put them into a slide show. You can actually click on photos as they pass by above to read info about who’s in them, etc. Enthused about watercolour, I brought my set […]

Some More Sketchbook Pages

By in cats, horses, men, sketches, watercolour, women

‘Cause of my getting a new scanner, I’ve scanned all these pages, which, up until now, were hidden in my sketchbook. Now they’re here, for all of you to enjoy! A couple of the characters here are taken from Barbara Bradley’s book Drawing People: How to portray the clothed figure. Will have to talk about […]

Finding My Way

By in horses, men, sketches, watercolour, women

Got some work to do. Just finding my way with a lot of drawings. I’m putting most of them up. My commissions don’t call for watercolour, but if I can do things right in that, I can also handle the black and white. i like my new watercolour book, and also how things look in […]

Watercolour Stuff

By in horses, men, watercolour

For some reason I felt it necessary to scan an entire watercolour sketchbook of mine today. It took all day, too. But I’m not putting any of it up, right now. The above is a new painting. I didn’t really finish it, but I seem to like it this way. Maybe later, I’ll add some […]

Bombastic Brush and Ink

By in horses, men, sketches, women

These brush drawings feel bombastic to me. A little quieter now that they’re scanned and put up. Still, that big brush line seems to “yell” more than the spidery pen. Harsh contrasts. The page below is from one of those big books, and it’s hard to cover all that area with the brush. Also, my […]

Insomniac Doodling

By in horses, sketches, women

I feel asleep earlier in the evening, so didn’t get to sleep when it was time for bed. Sinking in and out, I dreamed in that half awake way that a famous author was staying at my place. Unfortunately I forgot the name of his new book that he told me. Later, I made myself […]

Things I Saw

By in horses, men, sketches

Some of them in my mind. I did see a walking guy with a moustache, and some form of skyline. A Hercules plane flew over, but a James Bond jeep didn’t fall out. I saw Kate Beaton ponies on the web. Guess the figures will now be a valuable collectors item. That’s all for now.

More Little Book Drawings…

By in horses, men, sketches, women

Well, they were fun for me to do. Pretty tired now. Worked hard today. Maybe it’s just that I worked at all.
