Things to Do in the Current Pandemic: Learn from Pluto

Learn from Pluto? Yep, the dog, not the planet or the cartoon dog.  Pluto Living is a YouTube channel that has PSAs (Pluto Service Announcements) from Pluto the dog.

Things To Do in the Current Pandemic: Testing Non-Art Papers for Mixed Media Visual Journaling

Last week I wrote the following blog post to my Patreon-RozInterim subscribers. When I started my subscription blog on Patreon I had no intentions to share any of the posts from that blog with a larger audience.

What Are You Waiting for? Go Ahead Paint on Note Paper

    “What Are You Waiting for? Go Ahead Paint on Note Paper” pretty much says it all. Here’s a spread from one of my green lined journals. You can find non-art journals in any bookstore on earth—typically with botanical sketches or pink covers that will appeal to 16 year old girls. (Well actually to […]

Physical Therapy for Your Art Practice

I suggest to my Drawing Practice students that they do a six-week plan and goal setting session at the end of class; and that they repeat that every six weeks for the rest of their lives. Knowing what our goals are, and seeing how we executed our plans, helps us realign our strategy for going […]

Some Dog Sketches on Canson 180

      What better way to test a paper than with some dog sketches on Canson 180? In the sketches today I used a Sailor Fude Fountain pen (containing Platinum Carbon Black ink) and watercolor to make quick sketches from dogs on the Sktchy App.  The scans show paper buckling caused by the wet […]
