Snow Piles, We’ve Seen the Last of Them, for Now

Sometimes projects sneak up on us. Sometimes projects are simply the manifestation of a habit. Sometimes it’s fun to catch up on scanning your journal pages and seeing the massive amounts of snow you’ve just dealt with. (Actually I wasn’t doing much dealing with it—Dick was the one creating 7-foot tall snow piles on either […]

No missing text for this post, just an in-context post from my journal. (Bakers from the Great British Baking Show.) 

Here's a close up view to show some of the color pencil lines.

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. Some (when they were on loose sheets) might end up on the wall. I stopped looking for people in hats […]

Why Keep Sketching the Same Subject?

A friend of mine once said he couldn’t understand how I could draw the same subject over and over. I do that a lot. Most notably daily drawings for 4 and a half years of my dog Dottie.  But my life is full of drawing the same subject over and over. Life drawing models I […]

This is part two of the current series on tools changing the way that you draw. Specifically pens! You can see part one here. Today I’ve putting up three sketches of musician and artist John Lurie. He has had a series on HBO about his life on a Caribbean island. It’s a show where he […]

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 […]
