Recent TV Viewing

Above: Mah-Jing Wong from the current season of Project Runway. He's one of my favorites this season, despite almost always looking scared. He's had some bad deals but he's hanging on. I hope to catch him smiling at some point. Pentel Brush Pen—squeezy barrel, dye-based, water-soluble ink—sketch in a 8.27 x 11.69 inch (A4) size Hahnemühle […]

My Favorite TV Dog—Swatch

Above: Pentel Brush Pen and gouache sketch of Swatch from "Project Runway. (8 inch square hardbound journal with the old/defunct Folio paper). No black paint here, I'm experimenting with Helio Blue (a phthalo blue that has a bit of a green cast to it) and mixing it with it's complementary red. You can bet if […]

Legend—Tom Hardy’s Performance

Left: Actor Tom Hardy as Ron Kray in “Legend.” Pentel Brush pen with background of Montana Marker, in an 8 x 8 inch Seawhite of Brighton Sketchbook—which loves brush pen.

Minnesota State Fair Journal Update

Left: This year at the Fair, at least on a few days, there were some birds. A big change from last year when bird flu hit and birds were banned from the Fair. The sad news is that the pigeon fancy took a huge hit. We were down from hundreds of entries to less than […]

Saying Good-bye To Rubber Stamping?

Left: Six stacks of drawers and a couple boxes of materials waiting for the pick up. (Materials on the table are from an aborted trip I couldn't take because of an injury—I didn't even worry about putting that stuff away, I was that focused on sending the stamps to their new home.) The boxes contain the […]

Art Materials Nostalgia—Work It

Above: The set of 24 with some extras of my favorite colors—Berol Karisma Colour Pencils. In the front, a Global padded pencil case. Decades ago a large portion of my artwork was in color pencil. It's a labor-intensive medium (stroke after stroke after stroke) but it allows for looseness and detail, and it's fun to use. […]
