Well… it’s been about a month since I lost my sketchbook, close to it anyway, and it never turned up. Still miss that little guy, but I’ve been scribbling away in a new one as one does. I made this one out of a pad of hot press watercolor paper and I really am digging it. It allows me to use a variety of wet media and still get crisp lines with pen and ink… although it does smudge a bit more than I’d like with pencil. It is just a sketchbook after all so smudges and spills and mess ups are to be expected. I’ve been working on faces a lot lately using a bit Andrew Loomis’s method. It’s an interesting technique that lends itself well to caricature. There’s a fairly new 4 Lines Project up which is my favorite so far. Really just a lot of playing around. Haven’t had a chance to get out and about to draw except for a brief stint at Peet’s Coffee the other day. Well enjoy a couple of my faves from the past couple of weeks.
