Drawing So Fast You Don’t Think About It

If you’ve got some free moments, sit and draw as fast as you can. I no longer have close vision so it’s fun just to try and capture things on the page without glasses. Distance vision for me is crisper but also blurred.  I was probably watching Project Runway or some fashion movie last year […]

Just Go With Wonky

    Are the proportions right? Nope, but I like to work directly in ink. I think a little wonkiness makes it fresh. (9 x 12 inch brush pen and watercolor sketch.) I think using flat brushes helps take the fussiness away and also adds to the wonkiness. Let go and let your sketches be […]

The Right Pen with the Right Paper?

I have spent years telling students that there is no perfect paper. There is no perfect pen. That’s still true! Why write today that there is a right pen with the right paper? Because sketching, if you’re going to do it all the time, should be, in fact needs to be, fun. And one of […]

In Context: Changes I’d Like To Make But Know I Won’t

In the above page spread, in the field of orange color on the verso (left) page, you’ll see the conversation I had with Dick about one change which I would like to make, but know in my heart of hearts I won’t make.  Journals are great for capturing a perspective of our lives and dealing […]

What Are You Waiting for? Go Ahead Paint on Note Paper

    “What Are You Waiting for? Go Ahead Paint on Note Paper” pretty much says it all. Here’s a spread from one of my green lined journals. You can find non-art journals in any bookstore on earth—typically with botanical sketches or pink covers that will appeal to 16 year old girls. (Well actually to […]
