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, […]

In Search of a Pen, One Finds…

After sketching for a couple hours with a dried out pen I came into the packed up studio to find a new pen. I picked up a Sakura Professional Brush Pen FB and started to scribble a couple lines on a piece of newsprint that was sitting on the cutting table.  The pen felt great […]

Changing Things Up

There have been a lot of changes in my life recently. I’ll discuss more about them when they make sense. But at the same time, in the midst of all this. I do what I always do, I look for ways to stir up my art life. In the beginning of September in response to […]

In Context: Ambivalent About Doodles

This page spread might address my thoughts on doodles? In light of things to come I thought it was prescient. Keeping a journal is like that. You know you’re thinking about things before you think about them. The drawing on the verso page is NOT a doodle, it’s a quick sketch with a fine brush […]

In Context: Dabbling in Doodles

In amongst the pages and pages of bold-lined brush pen sketches doodles are popping up. I don’t think I’m as worried about it as “Colin” is, but now that I look at this spread I wonder.

Flood Debris Part 1: Doodles

Don’t get me wrong, I love water. I know it’s necessary to life (years of living adjacent to a desert gave me ample feedback on that!). But I don’t like water anywhere in my home—no plants to create humidity, no water features or burbling of any kind.  I like things dry. I put this down […]

In Context: Don’t Sketch When You’re Even Too Tired To Sit In A Chair!

A visual cautionary tale today. I was working from a reference photo on the Museum App (f.k.a. Sktchy) and I thought this person wearing bunny ears would be fun if I treated those ears not as attachable costume, but real ears! Sadly, I was so tired (sleep has been at a minimum lately) that when […]

In Context: Spur of the Moment Decisions Because of Paper

The end of 2022 was was a bit exhausting for me. And I made some spur of the moment decisions all because of how much I love working on Strathmore 500 Series Mixed media paper. You can read about it by clicking on the image. Sometimes we speed up to slow down. And sometimes we […]

In Context: A Collage Doodle

I got to doodling one night in a journal I’d bound with 90 lb. Fabriano Artistico Hot Press watercolor paper. And then I started to doodle with paper scraps. Pick up something you have at hand, just to break the rhythm, or simply because you want to play.

Another Sort of Selfie—The Doodle Selfie

  This is a late-night doodle, which is also a selfie… It’s on Fabriano Hot Press watercolor paper that I made into a hand-bound book. After midnight my spelling is questionable, though at least I still usually question it.
