Getting Some Sketching Practice In

The other day I was writing about a friend alerting me to the fact that Amazon Prime is now carrying some of the seasons of “Portrait Artist of the Year.” I have loved this show from the moment I heard about it from one of my English friends. Here are a couple sketches I made […]

More Hairstyles

  If you’re unable to look away from hair like I am, well then you’re just going to have to watch “Perry Mason” (Original series with Raymond Burr; you can watch the newer series set in the 1930s for hair as well, but there is only one season of that—I hope more shows up—but there […]

Commit to a Line or Correction

A couple days ago I wrote about accepting wonky lines. Here’s a sketch I haven’t posted, but just came across in organizing my files. Sometimes I have so much fun with the ears I don’t reach quite high enough for the head—but I commit to the correction and just start adding the hair, or in […]

A Look Back at the Early Days of the Pandemic

Journals remind us of things. They provide a look back. They can be a great record of the events of our lives. They provide a look back, in this instance, to the early days of the Pandemic. The Digital Armageddon I’m going through since February 2, 2021 has resulted in some losses of data—I need […]

Nostalgie Is A Fun Paper

    I think the sketch pretty much shows how much fun I was having on this paper so I’m not going to write more except to say you can use the category list or search engine on this blog to find more Nostalgie pages. The paper is smooth, heavyweight, and a delight for all […]

Rewatching “Death in Paradise”

In January I started rewatching “Death in Paradise.” It’s a “murder/detective/fish-out-of-water” show that I have enjoyed since first seeing it on PBS several years ago. I don’t want to give significant details away about the whole arc of the series, but basically an English policeman, not well liked at home for being a bit fussy […]

Quick sketches of some Bosc Pears with a Pentel dye-based brush pen. A Niji water brush was used to draw out the shading from the water-soluble ink lines. (All in the largest portrait Hahnemühle Nostalgie Sketchbook—the paper is a dream to work on with the PPBP and its cousins.)

What Do You Have on Hand?

It has been hectic here lately. I notice I’ve been getting grumpy. It’s not because I’m busy. I love being busy. It’s because I miss the Pentel Pocket Brush Pen (and the Pentel Colorbrush Pen cousins). All my projects involve other media right now. They leave little time in the day for my tired eyes to […]
