Free-hand drawing is my way of being in the moment. The resulting illustrations usually have more life, humor and whimsy, too. Here's a demo of my process.
Creating different cat breed cat sketches is an important first step in my cartooning process. From there the next steps are to simplify and find the funny!
Pen sketch drawing with water-soluble pens might seem like a draw back. But I've learned to go "with the flow" to create even more expressive drawings.
I enjoyed the Inktober art challenge so much that I even created a How To free-hand ink drawing video for my Inktober 2019 final illustration. Enjoy!
