Here’s another quick sketch of the same muse from Sktchy. I love that mustache. I was sitting in the car while Dick was in the pharmacy (all masked up). The visit went very quickly and I only had a few minutes. But it was enough time to look at the large shapes of value and […]
The Final Lectures—Self-assessments, Goals, Working with Intention, Lies of the Internal Critic, and a Pep Talk
This is part 4 of my farewell to teaching series. That’s a long blog post title, but that about covers it. This 46 minute video is excerpts from my Wrap Up Webinar with my final Drawing Practice online session. I talk about the topics in the title. For past drawing students just showing up […]

Two page spreads today from one of my Hahnemühle Travel Journals. (These are hardcover books that look like Moleskines, but these have more pages and a toothy drawing paper.) I used a Sakura Pigma Professional Brush Pen FB, watercolor, and a 1/2 inch flat brush. Take a moment to look at all the pieces in […]
I think the sketch pretty much shows how much fun I was having on this paper so I’m not going to write more except to say you can use the category list or search engine on this blog to find more Nostalgie pages. The paper is smooth, heavyweight, and a delight for all […]
