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 […]

Real-life Characters: Casketeers

  Last year when I had bronchitis for 5 months I discovered “Casketeers” on Netflix. If you like quirky people and enjoy learning how other people go through their days in different professions, and if you have ever desired to move to New Zealand, this show is something to check out. This reality show follows […]

More Hair—a Selfie

  I’m wrapping up the current hair series with a selfie. My braided hair of course. I don’t do selfies often. I have to stand in the bathroom and juggle pens and palettes.  I was frustrated late one night because my foot was in a cast and my vision was particularly frustrating. But there is […]

Television: Frank of Ireland

  There are some televisions shows I can’t really tell you about—you just need to experience them. To tell you specifics of “Frank of Ireland” (available on Amazon Prime) would be to spoil all the little and large discoveries you’ll make along the crazy, hilarious way. Frank is a 32-year-old would-be musician who lives at […]

Television Mysteries

Things have come up and interrupted my writing of blog posts. I’ve got little folders with the dates and topics and the drawings all set up and yet I keep getting “called” away. I decided rather than try to make the reasoned, composed, and collected blog post about all the mysteries on television I’ve been […]

Getting Something Down on the Page

This is a sketch from 2020. I was four months out from the second cataract surgery and I think I’d already had one secondary operation to zap some cloudiness. (But it didn’t resolve any of the double vision issues.) I was frustrated early one morning, unable to sleep. I scribbled. It felt great to get […]

Can’t Resist Those Almost Dried Out Brush Pens

Because of some equipment failures and other glitches in the system I’ve been behind in processing journal page scans. Here’s one of my favorites from 2020. This is a sketch, using a dried out brush pen, of the detective in “Dead Still.” I’ve written about the show before. It’s a favorite of mine. It involves […]

Embrace the Wonkiness

Too many of my students fuss and fuss over a wonky line, or worse, stop a sketch altogether because a likeness is lost. But I think there is great fun in diving in with a bold pen and feeling about for the features, one wonky line after the other. Finishing something leads to something else […]
