Still Playing with the Kuretake AI Liner Ultra Fine Brush Pen

Enjoying working on ThSaunders/Waterford 90lb. hot press watercolor paper in a book I bound that’s about 8 inches square.  I’m still playing with the Kuretake AI Liner Ultra Fine Brush Pen. It doesn’t have a long life—not if you use it to do entire sketches. If you only brought it in for fine-line work at […]

More Thoughts From Chekov

Brush pen and ink wash in a lined non-art paper notebook. Sketching while watching “Top Chef.” And thinking as I move through my day.

TV Competition Shows

Chekov was prescient. Brush pen and ink wash in a bookstore lined notebook (because I love painting and using wet media like ink wash on non-art papers).

It’s Fun to Think about the Space Around the Subject

What happens if our drawing bleeds off the top of a page or the side of the page? What happens when we focus on the ears and the space around them? What happens when we pull focus with color? What happens when we work with junk paint on our palette and find a new skin […]

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 […]

Staying Up Late to Draw

  The page spread text is today’s post. The rest is just details…  I painted first, then let the paper dry and added the ink, a bit of a turn around for me. I was working with the Kuretake AI Liner Ultra fine brush pen. This was towards the end of the life of my […]

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. It’s something that’s in the non-public archive so I can’t give you a link. But I wanted to revisit the text. I was writing […]

The Funny Thing About Favorites

The funny thing (well one of them anyway) about any creative endeavor, is that the artist’s favorite is frequently (well maybe more likely never) the favorite of the viewer. It’s a simple thing. As an artist you sketch something that caught your eye, or if it’s from  your imagination, which you created whole. And it […]

You Can’t Sketch Too Many Roosters

I think an imperfect drawing of a rooster just might be better than a perfect drawing of anything else. The looking, while sketching, brings the joy. And I can’t think of anything I’d rather look at than roosters. Well maybe rocks.
