Using More Than One Type of Pen

The mood we want to achieve in a finished illustration influences what type of pen we choose to work with—what type of line we want to express. It’s obvious when I started to sketch this I was pulled by interest in the facial hair and short hair on the head, as well as the height […]

Accessories for Today’s Virtual Minnesota State Fair Sketch-In

Today at 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. CDT I’ll be live streaming a sketching demo. It’s a Virtual State Fair Sketch-In because I won’t be at the Fairgrounds—the Minnesota State Fair was cancelled this year due to the Pandemic. I’m glad we are staying safe but I’m always at the Fair on this day in […]

Making Fun Lines

Just a quick little post. I was waiting for an appointment. It’s a waiting room where I’ve already drawn all the walls, halls, furniture, and decor! I looked up a bearded model on the iPhone Sktchy App and sat there in very low light, scribbling away. Even thought the pen was going dry, it feels […]

Detail from the above page spread. What caught my attention was the lovely light that caused such interesting shadows on this pigeon.

Even if Your Vision Is Giving You Fits You Can Still Get Some Sketching Done

This is a short pep talk. Your glasses don’t fit. The prescription isn’t right. Your vision is blurred by cataracts and any number of things that can happen to eyes. And you just don’t feel like sketching. Tough do it anyway. It keeps you prepped for sketching the next time your vision isn’t as blurred. […]

Make Some Marks, You Know You Want To…

Go on, make some marks. You know you want to, what’s stopping you? Even with uncorrected vision I have moments with my eyes. Moments which allow me, even if I can’t see accurately, to at least make a series of marks that describe a texture, follow a form, and create a pattern on the page […]

What’s Coming Up on Roz’s Subscription Blog in February?

There will be a bonus portrait sketch painting because my subscribers in January asked […]

I Test the Ultra-fine Tipped Pentel Artists Brush Sign Pen

  This ultra-fine brush tipped pen from Pentel—I don’t know what it’s called…The barrel reads: “Brush Sign Pen Artist.” It’s one of their Sign Pens in that it has dye-based, fugitive, water-soluble ink, but unlike their other “sign pen” it doesn’t have a solid fiber tip—it has an ultra thin, ultra fine, brush with individual […]
