Everything Changes: The New Moleskine Sketchbooks

  Above: Label on the new Moleskines announcing the new paper. If you keep a journal or sketchbook long enough you’ll find particular favorites. A book that is just the right size to fit in your pack and in your hand. A book filled with just the right paper—paper perfectly (or nearly) suited to your […]

Moleskine Myths: They Open Flat?

Above: A quick sketch of Dick sitting on the TV room couch next to a bright light. I worked in a new Moleskine with the whiter, more absorbent paper. Look at the gutter area and the offset that prevented me from working across the page. There’s flat and then there’s flat. People who use Moleskines […]

Roz and C.R. Ride in an Ambulance

Above: Graphite sketch of C.R. in the hospital—on the new whiter, more absorbent (not that it mattered with graphite) Moleskine Sketchbook paper. Sketch in a 5.25 x 8.25" approx.

Testing a New Commercially Bound Journal While Out With the Folks

Above: Busy day with the folks. There are sketches and notes on the page from the visit to CR's eye doctor, but later in the day I sat and colored with Phyl—well she colored in her coloring book and I sketched. For some reason I started on the same spread, but that meant the coffee machine […]

Still Working Out What To Do About Those Eyebrows

Left: Water-soluble color pencil (Faber-Castell Albrecht Dürer) and watercolor on Arches Cold Press Watercolor Board (8 x 10 inch board). Even though International Fake Journal Month is over I'm still working on that Arches Cold Press Watercolor Board with Watercolors.

Why I Love Gouache

Above: Pentel Pocket Brush Pen sketch in a Japanese Lined Journal. This sketch was made on a spread first covered with Montana Acrylic Marker and washi tape. I then painted with gouache, just the areas of the portrait that I wanted to paint, using the paint opaquely when I wanted to obscure the lines and background color, […]

Above: Quick pear sketches using the Pentel Pocket Brush Pen (PPBP) in a handmade journal made with defunct printmaking paper that I'm totally besotted with. Slowly, inevitably, I am working my way through this journal I made in the early 2000s with the last of a now defunct printmaking paper. It is so fabulous not […]
