A Quick First Look at a Kilimanjaro Journal

Above: 9 x 12 inch page from a wire-bound Kilimanjaro sketchbook (Cheap Joe’s). I created an acrylic texture on the page by taping off an area. Then I sketched a selfie using a Pentel Brush Pen (pigment ink). The orange background color was added after sketching, as was the blue on the hair band. The […]

Birthday Epiphanies All Around

I think I'll let the journaling on the birthday selfie say it all. (You can click on the image to view an enlargement. And Yes, I drew in my tri-focal lines.)  This sketch is on an 11 x 15 inch sheet of Wave paper which is cheap drawing paper that's almost as absorbent as Kleenex®. […]

Coincidence: And Another Selfie

I’ve been swamped the last few days but here’s a selfie I did on January 1, 2016. After I returned from the zoo, I just wanted to do more sketching in that lovely journal with the now defunct printmaking paper. Dick was too ill to pose for me. (I never caught his cold I’m happy […]

Overcoming Resistance in Your Creative Life

Above: Selfie made looking in the bathroom mirror, sketching with a Pentel Pocket Brush Pen, on Nideggen (in a handmade journal that's about 7 1/2 inches square). (Text obscured for privacy.) Vertigo or not, I'm going to sketch every day. It keeps me tuned up for those days when I can really pull out all […]

A Quick Look at the Pilot Futayaku Double-Sided Brush Pen

Left: Self portrait made at the bathroom mirror. My braids are tucked back behind my head because I was gluing (nothing like leaning forward and getting glue in your hair!). I’m testing the Pilot Futayaku Double-Sided Brush Pen in a handmade book that’s about 7.5 inches square—I made it with Nideggen paper. Before the Minnesota […]

Proportions and Features: Eyeballing vs. Systems

Left: Selfie made while looking in the bathroom mirror. A 7 x 7 inch, approx. journal (turned on its side so I could have a vertical) I made with Niddegen. I used a fiber-tipped brush pen containing Platinum Carbon Black ink cartridges. I'm wearing my favorite T-shirt—a 25 year old Lake Street Shirt design, given […]

A Movie Marathon—Or What To Do When You Have the Flu—OR There’s Only So Much Chicken Soup You Can Eat

Above: Self-portrait made while standing in front of the bathroom mirror. I used a Pentel ColorBrush with black, dye-based, watersoluble, fugitive ink. It's in my 8 x 10 inch Hand•Book journal which I will have much more to say later because It's my last journal of the year and I've been testing it and the […]

Not Looking Like Myself

Left: A Magenta Watercolor Brush Pen (Bienfang/Speedball) sketch made while I was looking in the mirror. Strathmore 500 Series Mixed Media hardbound journal, approx 8.5 x 11 inches. While I'm on the subject of portraits not looking like their subject this week I thought I'd post this self-portrait I did the other day. I'd had […]
