In Context—a Journal Page

I’ve been out of the office for a bit. More info to come. But I realized it had been the longest ever since I’d posted on my blog. This is what I’ve been thinking and sketching lately. With a dry brush pen of course. I just bought some new pens so maybe the dried out […]

In Context: Thoughts about Memory

Everything has been churned up in my life for the past several years. Covid slowed, to almost a halt, a downsizing that I’m just beginning to see the possible end to. But the last five years have had me also thinking a lot about memory. Then I find myself watching TV and another step of […]

Why Keep Sketching the Same Subject?

A friend of mine once said he couldn’t understand how I could draw the same subject over and over. I do that a lot. Most notably daily drawings for 4 and a half years of my dog Dottie.  But my life is full of drawing the same subject over and over. Life drawing models I […]

Jack Unruh Retrospective Show

I don’t draw attention to many upcoming shows, typically I just go to a show and then maybe write about it—like when I go to a show at Mia. But Jack Unruh is one of my all time favorite artists. His use of pen and watercolor is stunning and quirky at the same time. He […]

Johnny Vegas—An Autobiography in Multiple Voices

Readers of RWU will know that sketches of Johnny Vegas make it into a post every now and then; and onto my instagram. I watch a lot of British TV. He’s on a lot of shows that I enjoy watching. I pick up a pen… Then the other day “the algorithm” threw out that Vegas […]

Journal Pages Just Happen: That’s Part of the Fun

One evening I found myself really digging in and overworking the black wool on the head of a sheep. It was one of those scribbly moments. A sheep flashed on the TV and I blocked it in (I’ve drawn hundreds and hundreds of sheep so I wanted to see if I could do a memory […]

Things Happen When You Sketch Directly In Ink

Things happen when you sketch directly in ink and you just have to learn to live with them. (Though you can do another sketch, or put in correction marks if that suits your purpose, I’m just saying…) It doesn’t bother me that this sketch of a character actor gave him a cross-eyed view. I love […]

The Kakimori Brass Pen Nib

  This spring a friend told me about a new sort of dip pen: The Kakimori Brass Pen Nib. It’s shaped like a bullet. Channels all around the nib feed the ink to the point. (See the product photo at the left.) I thought it might be interesting to try it out because you can […]

Paper Nostalgia

Paper nostalgia is that pull and desire to work on a particular type of paper that you haven’t worked on in some time. I was trying to organize some of my images in my database and came across this one from almost a year ago. I felt an immediate wave of paper nostalgia. My first thought […]
