Leisure Reading: with Movie Recommendations

Above: No that's not the largest pear in the universe. I was actually sketching the spices we'd just come home with and extended the drawing, loosing my comparison points. My bike was still leaning against another table in the under-construction-kitchen at this time. (The kitchen has been under construction for years, don't ask.) I got […]

Prismacolor sketch of Dick as he sat on the couch in the TV room. I took another crack at those eyebrows. 7.5 inch square handmade journal with Nideggen paper. Note: I don't usually let my mull show at the gutter, but this particular book was made in a class where one of the students mis-tore all his paper when I looked away for 30 seconds (really). After that I never looked away from him more than 10 seconds so my book has a very "gestural" aspect. But the student did leave class with a completed book!

Nideggen Is Great for Color Pencil Too

This is one of my favorite sketches of Dick. Nideggen is a great paper, and not just for ink, it works well with dry media like a color pencil as well. In fact, if you want to go really crazy on this toned surface with a full range of color pencils you will not be […]

Giddy about Watercolors on Nideggen and SOME Aspects of “Into the Badlands”

I’m Giddy for Schmincke Pan Watercolors on Nideggen Paper

  Above: Sketch of a Belgian fashion designer—sketched of course because of his ears. Really. Schmincke pan watercolors and Pentel Pocket Brush Pen on Nideggen paper in a handmade journal 7.5 inches square. I’ve already admitted to having way too much fun in the 7.5 roughly square journal I made with Nideggen that I’m using […]

A Show Worthy of Bingeing On: River

Left: Sketch of Stellan Skarsgård as D.I. River in his pinched and stylish suit, contemplating life. Permanent pigment ink and watersoluble dye-based ink on Nideggen in a 7.5 inch square handmade journal turned on end vertically.   Brother of my friend: Have you seen “Man in the High Castle”? R: No I’ve seen it advertised, […]

Overcoming Resistance in Your Creative Life

Above: Selfie made looking in the bathroom mirror, sketching with a Pentel Pocket Brush Pen, on Nideggen (in a handmade journal that's about 7 1/2 inches square). (Text obscured for privacy.) Vertigo or not, I'm going to sketch every day. It keeps me tuned up for those days when I can really pull out all […]
