I really like this particular pen I used. I like that it almost scratches the surface of the paper. I am very preoccupied with line on paper, and I have realized that part of that is the feel of the pen point as it draws the lines. It's the little things :)
because he perfectly enunciates what I am striving for in my sketchbooks/journals. I used to be very linear thinking with regard to my journals and sketchbooks being separate. No writing personal stuff in my sketchbook, etc. That is being broken off, and my linear thinking is evolving....whoo hoo to that I say! Enjoy!
Notice anything different with the set up of the blog? I played around (read: experimented) with the html (gasp) in an attempt to get bigger pictures. For the sake of my viewing public, I have left THIS picture normal size :)
Some of the others aren't very good quality, which is a scanning issue (again with the scanner). But still....I achieved what I wanted in widening the outer wrapper and the main wrapper and the blah blah blah.
So. Who's Yo Daddy? I want to know.
*stay tuned for even bigger and badder improvements. Like the comment section moving back where it belongs instead of sitting there at the top like I am attention starved.
I was so proud of this tree in my sketchbook because it is so cleverly drawn on the edge of the page. Well. As I am apt to do, I went back and added some marker to the drawing on the previous page, thereby causing this big awkward blob to appear right in the middle of my cleverly planned composition. Sadness. Must draw that again on another page. If I were really clever I would have Photoshopped that sucker right on out. I believe we can chalk that up to laziness.
about my obsession with these...here is another of the abstract-tree-negative-space drawings. Every morning I have my coffee on the balcony accompanied by the sweet sound of birds in the trees and the sweet smell of gasoline from the Hispanic landscapers who incessantly trim, cut, and leaf blow outside my apartment. There is this one section of the tree that stares at me (I kid you not) everyday, begging me to draw it. This morning it's begging was so loud I couldn't concentrate on anything else. Thus...here we have another in the series... Enjoy!
