Really, I mean it.

In Context: My Life Is a Stream of Detective Shows

…often the detectives meet on the page. Update: People didn’t recognize Ray Collins as Lt. Arthur Tragg from the long-running “Perry Mason” with Raymond Burr. Yes, he has nothing to do with Poirot, that’s what I meant by my life being a stream of detective shows—meeting on the page. If you’re one of the folks […]

In Context: Some Neighborhood Excitement

I’ve been playing with grids—more about that on another day—and looking out the window at the world. Why not sketch the tree cutting process? Sometimes you just want to take it all in—and I didn’t want to get pigments in the kitchen sink! The sketch on the page is an actor I’d sketched the day […]

Blick’s White Sulphite Drawing Paper

The other day a friend stopped over with some of Blick’s White Sulphite Drawing Paper. She was going to do some gel printing on it, but she thought I might enjoy testing it. I did. I videotaped my first drawing session using this paper. You can hear my opinions about the paper and learn other […]

Studies: Observing the Subject Over and Over

Studies are something all visual artists do, pretty much every day.  Studies are about cementing the observation of a subject into a visual approach you can apply to your paper or canvas. But studies don’t always happen before you make a more finished piece. On this page spread, which is in a Canson 180 Sketchbook […]

In Context: I Invent a New Game for Two Or More

You can read the text on the page spread if you click to enlarge it. As to the brush and ink wash sketch—I was watching the Great British Baking show that evening.

In Context: Bedtime Rituals Part 2

Sometimes at the end of the day I like to watch “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” and sketch Ryan Stiles. There is something refreshing and healing about having a good laugh at the end of the day. I guess this means that in my philosophy Ryan Stiles’ work is as essential as puppies. (See previous […]

Why I Do What I Do: Watching TV…

Some times I watch TV just so I can sketch pirates and brigands. They usually have a lot of hair, a beard, and a snarl from saying “Arrrgghh.” All of which are fun to sketch. (Brush pen and ink wash in a Canson 180 sketchbook.)

Making Your Own Loose Sheets

For the past several years I’ve really enjoyed working on the paper in the Canson 180 sketchbook. I couldn’t find anywhere to buy the paper unbound. This year, the first week of January, I was about to start another Canson 180 sketchbook. I like to have one going while I have an art-paper journal going. […]
