I sketched my very pregnant and very tired grandmother using an old photo as reference. Sharpie, sakura pigma micron pens and walnut ink in a pocket Moleskine sketchbook. The sharpie bled through and the paper became kind of crumbly with the walnut ink. I think I’ll have to get a pocket sized watercolor moleskine at some point.
Woody Allen circa 1977. I opened my sketchbook yesterday and felt like finally trying that yellow india ink that had been sitting here forever. I also mixed some walnut ink crystals and used them for the first time here. I used my very limited prismacolor markers for the rest. I just started using the blender marker and the results are pretty awkward. I’m trying to practice and make one drawing a day with whatever medium I feel like using at the moment. I still have such a long way to go… I just want to make my baby proud. :-)
