Yep, every so often I write a new post to convince everyone to use a brush pen for direct sketching, i.e., just draw with it, no pencil sketch, no net. It’s just too fun. So it’s the new year, and the Pandemic is still raging, and I thought it would be a good time to […]
The brilliant audacity of this hair takes my breath away. It makes me smile.
I wish EVERYONE paid more attention to this. You might say, “Roz, I don’t have a paper budget, I’ve got a grocery budget right now and I use what I use for paper.” Yep, I get that. I don’t have a paper budget right now either. I do have some paper purchased for projects that […]
This is a follow up of Wednesday’s post. Here’s an example of my experimenting with brush pen and ink wash on a page in a Japanese Lined journal. I’d like to tell you this is cropped because there is text on the recto page that is private, but in reality it’s blank there, just more […]

I think the title of today’s post says it all, “Why Not Blue Stubble?” It seemed like a good decision at the time and I’m standing by it.
