When Is It a Good Time to Sketch in Pencil?

Usually I answer the question “When is it a good time to sketch in pencil?” simply by saying “Never.” I reside in the camp of, sketch in ink, live with the odd-off strokes, the pentimento. Use it all to train your eye. But sometimes you want really smooth lines, or don’t want to risk missing […]

Another Hat

I found some more hats from the hat project in 2018.   I was working in an 8 inch square hand bound journal I’d made using the OLD Gutenberg paper from Hahnemühle. (Remember I don’t recommend the new version of Gutenberg now being sold. It still binds up great, but it doesn’t work with wet […]

In 2018 I Did a Project about Hats

Yep, hats; just me drawing people with hats on. Sometimes I worked in my current journal, sometimes I worked on loose sheets for my loose sheets journal. I found some while moving old digital file.

The Weird Connectivity of the World

A few years ago I sketched this man a couple times from different photos I found on the Sktchy App, now called Museum by Sktchy. After I posted them (both done within a few days of each other and posted at the same time) a local friend wrote to me and told me that I […]

Sketch People From All Angles

  It’s important to sketch people from all angles. Actually to sketch the SAME person from all angles. If you can’t get out and about ask your housemates (significant other, children, Aged P, guests, etc.) to let you sketch them while they read a book or watch TV. No one around? Not even a dog, […]
