Looking at the Sennelier Ink Brush Pen

Note: I’ve just placed the sketches in order, in the gallery below. The order is important if you want to follow along with the experiment. I was working with photos of fair goers from @earthsworld. Early in April I saw an ad for the Sennelier Ink Brush Pen. They look like the Pentel ColorBrush. They […]

Another Green Sheet

When I’m testing a pen or a paper (or in this case both) I like to work with them for several days. So the day after that green lady from my previous post, I sketched this woman—again a fair goer from @earthsworld. My thoughts on this face were a bit different. I added a bit […]

Drawing to Improve Your Mood

Recovering from the  iliac vein dissection has been difficult. It’s placed limits on my mobility and energy. I’ve had to change how I think about exercise. My heart is broken that I can’t cycle any more. One morning I wrote this caption on the next page in my journal, after a painful effort of exertion. […]

What I Did in the Pandemic: Thoughts

In Context: Sketching to Work Something Out

The other day I sketched this white Chihuahua.  I went in too dar with the ink to start, and at one point before much was down, I made a small circle at the top right to start again, but then I thought, “Just look at the hair.” And I went back to the main sketch […]

What I Did in the Pandemic: Zooming

During the Pandemic I did Zoom calls with friends, as you’ll learn if you read this page spread—which is full of writos; it was late, I was tired, but you can tell what I meant to write in context. For the first time in 43 years I was learning what it was like to have […]

Attitude

Attitude—is it a glance, a glare, the curl of a hair, the posture, the stance? The incorporated whole embodying presence.

In Context: My Life Is a Stream of Detective Shows

…often the detectives meet on the page. Update: People didn’t recognize Ray Collins as Lt. Arthur Tragg from the long-running “Perry Mason” with Raymond Burr. Yes, he has nothing to do with Poirot, that’s what I meant by my life being a stream of detective shows—meeting on the page. If you’re one of the folks […]

In Context: A Little Doodling

You’ll remember that in December I was trying to finish a couple journals so I could count the pages in my yearly total. By the start of December I knew that unless something drastic happened I would have no problems meeting that goal. Everything was progressing at a rational (i.e., no long sessions of drawing, […]
