Above: Quick sketch of clothing designer Wes Gordon, as seen on "The Fashion Fund." Sepia Pentel Colorbrush Pen (dye-based, non-archival, but deliciously watersoluble) on a spread in my 8.5 x 11 inch (approx.) Japanese lined notebook.
Left: Detail from the above image. The paper in these notebooks is on the gray side. I diluted the sepia brush pen ink with a Niji waterbrush. Sometimes I ran the Niji over the tip of the sepia pen to pick up some diluted ink and used the Niji to lay that diluted color down. Other times I pulled diluted color out of lines I already had on the paper. And of course many times I just squeezed one or the other of the brush pens and flicked water or ink as desired.
As the title of today's post suggests, I did indeed go a little crazy with the squeezy type brush pens in the past week. I'm paying for it now with sore hand and arm. So no typing.
I just have to say, it was so fun that yes it was worth the discomfort.
