Journal Pages Just Happen: That’s Part of the Fun

One evening I found myself really digging in and overworking the black wool on the head of a sheep. It was one of those scribbly moments. A sheep flashed on the TV and I blocked it in (I’ve drawn hundreds and hundreds of sheep so I wanted to see if I could do a memory […]

Paper Nostalgia

Paper nostalgia is that pull and desire to work on a particular type of paper that you haven’t worked on in some time. I was trying to organize some of my images in my database and came across this one from almost a year ago. I felt an immediate wave of paper nostalgia. My first thought […]

Two Portraits, Two Different Pens

  I am always amazed at the different line qualities different pens give the same hand. And how even the same pen dried out will render results so different from the first use of a non-refillable pen, or any tool that gets worn. In this page spread I warmed up with a sketch from one […]

Things You Find in Your Digital Archive

I thought I started using the Hahnemühle Travel Journal well before 2019, but my journals are all in storage for the downsizing. I’m just now going through some digital files trying to rebuild my archive. It’s fun to take a quick look at the past with these scans. Today I found this sketch and I’m […]

Sometimes Even A Fun-to-Draw Beard Isn’t Sufficient Inducement to Watch a TV Show

I watch a lot of TV. This has always been true. And I often sketch while watching TV. The other day, before I canceled Comcast Cable TV (because for over 6 months they had been sending technicians to fix a pixelation and no-picture random-reboot situation) I caught a brief few moments of “Mud, Sweat, and […]

Yep, The Posts Are Shorter…for Now

A kind reader wrote to me last week and said, “Do you know your full blog posts aren’t being posted? I get your email notice of a new post, click on the post, and when I get to the blog there is no additional text.” Of course I went right away to check things out. […]

Just Doodling Around

  Just me doodling around on that unknown smooth but fiber-flecked paper I found in a Japanese stab binding that I pulled apart. (A teaching sample I no longer needed.) I really wish I could find a note on what type of paper it was. I know it was commercial printing paper so I’ll just […]

Another Look at a Watercolor Triad

I don’t really have much more to say about the Green, Purple and Orange triad I’ve been using for the past couple of months, except to say that I’ve enjoyed the versatility of it. I’ve sketched light furred dogs and black and white dogs, and people with all different skin tones. It has been fun […]

A Different Sort of Wizard—Special Circumstances

  Today seemed a good day to share another one of my wizard paintings because, well next month (April) on my Patreon blog I’m going to be sharing the full, realtime version of this sketch as a secondary demo. (You can already see the sketch silent and sped up to only 3 minutes long on […]
