Cryptic Notes on Slips of Paper

As I wrap up my Patreon/RozInterim site my desk is layered with all manner of cryptic notes. Some notes quote me back to myself. It’s my students telling me a quotation mattered to them, helped them turn a corner in their drawing practice. I’m always surprised what things hit and when. Some notes remind me […]

Page by Page

  Page by page I’ve been working through one of my last remaining hand-bound journals containing ThSaunders/Waterford 90 lb. high white, hot press watercolor paper. The great news is that they are still making this paper so that I could bind some more of these approximately 8-inch square books. This is one of the recent […]

You Are the Why

  I was searching for something the other day in the rabbit warren of my digital files now under reconstruction.  In a happy accident I found something I posted years ago.

You Always Have Time for a Quick Brush Pen Sketch

  I really enjoy looking at this page spread from last fall after I got out of the hospital. I felt strong enough to stand at the counter and flick the pen around the page. We were back at home with fresh bread and great meat, and a really great tomato! Getting back to our […]

(Right now there are new videos for the subscribed in a final free month through June, but no new subscriptions are being accepted.) It contained over 57 main demonstration tutorials and hours and hours of themed video chats […]

A Goofy but Useful Dip Pen Chart?

  EXHIBIT A: Yep, pretty much from the time I was 9 and got my first dip pen my hands have looked like this. Teachers gave up on me until Mrs. Osbourne, my First Form art teacher tried to make me clean up my act. Alas, as we can see from this photo, after all […]

My Relationship with Perry Mason, Part 47 of ?

I don’t even know how to begin to document my relationship to “Perry Mason” (the television series starring Raymond Burr. (I also enjoy the new version with Matthew Rhys but I’ve been saving the final episodes of that since it hasn’t been renewed for a third season, but that will definitely have to be a […]
